CWS Files Extension Request on OSHA’s Worker Walkaround NPRM

On September 21, the Coalition for Workplace Safety and 74 employer organizations filed an extension request with OSHA asking for an additional 60 days to be added to the agency’s Worker Walkaround notice of proposed rulemaking.

Our letter explains, “A 60-day extension to the comment period would ensure the regulated community has the opportunity it needs to analyze the changes, assess their potential impacts, and draft comprehensive comments that will fully address the consequences of these changes on the economy, business operations, and workplace dynamics. By providing this extension, OSHA will obtain more insightful and useful input from the regulated community before making such significant changes to its procedures.”

Comments are currently due on October 30.
