OSHA To Hold Additional Public Meeting On Recordkeeping Proposal
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will hold another public meeting on revised rules it has proposed for recording workplace deaths, injuries and illnesses.
OSHA held public meetings on the proposal from March 26 to March 29. This additional meeting was scheduled in response to a request from stakeholders who were unable to attend the earlier meeting. It will give the public another opportunity to inform OSHA of issues raised by the proposal.
The public comment period for commenting on the recordkeeping proposal also has been extended from May 2 to May 31, 1996.
Seating in the public meeting is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Persons wishing to make presentations should contact Tom Hall, U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA, Room N-3647, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20210, phone (202) 219-8148 on or before April 19.

The proposed revisions are aimed at simplifying the reporting and recordkeeping system and improving future use of the data.
The proposal was published in the Feb 2, 1996, Federal Register and is also available through OSHA's Home Page on the Internet at http://www.osha.gov, in the "What's New" section.
