OSHA, and the rest of the world, would not want you to text a comment while driving a motor vehicle.

Here's Your Chance to Take Shots at OSHA Regs

The plan is based on public feedback collected earlier. The deadline for comments is 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 1.

The U.S. Department of Labor has given the public until July 1 -- safety and health professionals and employers take note -- to comment on its preliminary plan to revise department regulations, including some from OSHA. A new web page has been created to accept comments on the "Preliminary Plan for Retrospective Analysis of Existing Rules," which DOL published on May 26.

Comments about OSHA's regs included some requesting that, based on the latest science, the agency update its Permissible Exposure Limits. But the OSHA regulation that attracted the most comments concerned whistleblower protections, and the comments suggested enhancements to that program, according to the plan.

The plan is based on public feedback collected earlier. The deadline for comments is 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 1.

"The Department of Labor's regulatory retrospective plan is our road map to constantly improving regulations," said DOL Assistant Secretary for Policy Dr. William E. Spriggs. "Our regulatory approach will be driven by effectiveness and responsibility, and we welcome input from all of our stakeholders during this process."

The web page is part of the department's compliance with Executive Order 13563, which calls for federal agencies to detail how they will review existing significant regulations to identify whether they may be made more effective or less burdensome.
