OSHA Delaying Enforcement of Anti-Retaliation Provisions

OSHA Delaying Enforcement of Anti-Retaliation Provisions

The provisions are part of the new injury and illness tracking rule

OSHA has announced it is delaying enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions in its new injury and illness tracking rule to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers. The rule was originally scheduled to be enforced starting Aug 10., 2016, but will now start Nov. 1, 2016.

The rule requires employers to inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation, as well as implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable. Employers must also incorporate the existing statutory prohibition on retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
