April Was A Busy Month For OSHA

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Update: April Showers Bring May Headaches

Last week the National Law Review had an article summarizing OSHA's major activities in April under the above headline.  The article takes an in-depth look at the impact of OSHA allowing unions to represent employees during inspections of non-union workplaces.  The opening paragraph of the article states:

"The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was particularly active in April 2013. It kicked off the month by issuing a surprising interpretation letter granting unions and community organizers access to nonunion worksites during OSHA inspections and allowing employees to designate such organizations to act as their representatives during the course of an OSHA proceeding. That interpretation flies in the face of the prevailing interpretation for decades that permitted unions to participate in OSHA inspections only in settings where the union was the lawfully recognized representative of employees there. OSHA ended the month by launching an initiative intended to protect temporary or contract workers."
