CWS Urges Congress to Pass CRA Resolution Nullifying OSHA’s Worker Walkaround Rule

On May 17, the Coalition for Workplace Safety and 58 other employer organizations sent a letter to members of the House of Representatives urging them to pass Representative Mary Miller’s Congressional Review Act resolution to nullify the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s worker walkaround final rule.

The following can be attributed to CWS spokesperson Lauren Williams, Associate Vice President of Government Relations at the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors:

“The worker walkaround final rule invites third parties to use the OSHA inspection process to further their own agendas against employers. This policy will only hurt efforts to ensure safe and healthy workplaces for American workers. It will put OSHA inspectors in the middle of labor disputes and force them to pull their focus away from the crucial responsibility of finding and rectifying hazards in the workplace.

“Representative Miller’s CRA resolution is critical to safeguarding the OSHA inspection process and thereby ensuring workers across the economy have safe and healthy workplaces. It also protects employers against individuals with their own agendas attempting to use the inspection process to harm employers.

“CWS urges Congress to pass the CRA resolution and nullify this policy as quickly as possible.”
