OSHA Delays Enforcement of New Regulations
For A Second Time
Earlier this year OSHA announced new regulations which limit post-accident drug testing, virtually outlawed all safety related incentive plans and required additional notifications to employees. The regulations were to go into effect on August 10; however, the regulations were delayed to November 1. In response to a federal judge’s request in Texas, OSHA again has agreed to delay enforcement until December 1, 2016.
The portion of the new rules relating to electronic filing of Forms 300, 300A and 301 are not affected by this delay.
