OSHA Changes Rules for Reporting Work Place Injuries
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) withdrew a rule recently that required employers to record work-related musculoskeletal disorders – like carpel tunnel syndrome – on a separate column on injury logs. OSHA’s decision comes in spite of the fact that, as OSHA Administrator David Michaels himself explained, “Work-related musculoskeletal disorders remain the leading cause of workplace injury and illness in this country.”
OSHA’s rule retraction limits the available remedies to injured workers. However, other viable venues exist for a redress of grievance.
