Senate Workforce Panel Also Scrutinizing OSHA's Standards

Today's hearing by the U.S. House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections on the relevance of current OSHA standards is just one of the congressional spotlights on the agency. This Thursday at 10 a.m. Eastern time, the U.S. Senate's Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety has its own hearing scheduled. Its title: "Is OSHA Working for Working People?"

This is the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions subcommittee that is especially interesting because of its Democratic members, who include Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and Barack Obama of Illinois -- presidential contenders all. The subcommittee's chair is Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., is ranking member.

Thursday's hearing will be available as a live webcast from the committee's homepage, http://help.senate.gov/./index.html. The witness list had not been posted as of yesterday morning.
