OSHA Regulations Withdraw and Delayed

The Trump Administration has delayed or withdrawn 860 regulatory rules during its first five months, according to an article on manufacturing.net. Among suspended Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules were provisions regarding combustible dust exposure, construction noise, vehicles driving in reverse at factories and construction sites, and chemical exposure standards. According to Bloomberg, other industry-supported workplace safety rules, including those regulating communications towers and industrial trucks, have remained on track.


Peg Samenario of the AFL-CIO slammed the dust and told Bloomberg that the White House “is abandoning protecting workers from health and safety hazards.”
