OSHA Delays Hearing And Ergonomics Requirements

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has decided to put off for another year enforcement of some of its hearing and ergonomics reporting requirements. The requirements were part of the Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements published January 19, 2001. The elements being put off until January 1, 2004, include a definition of musculosketal disorders and requirement to maintain a log for such disorders that occur in the workplace, and a requirement for employers to provide certain information about hearing loss. The changes were contained in a final rule published in the December 17 Federal Register.By James A. Morrissey, Washington Correspondent December 2002
