OSHA Notification Bill Introduced

Posted in: Capital Watch

Late last month, Representative Glenn Grothman (R-Wisc.) introduced the OSHA Employer Notification Act (H.R.5870), which would require OSHA to notify a business of an alleged violation 24 hours prior to making a public statement regarding the violation. Additionally, this bill requires OSHA to update public postings on their website if the citation is subsequently reduced or dropped altogether. Currently, OSHA can notify press outlets of alleged violations made by a business before communicating the allegations to the business itself.
