Abstract: Various OSHA standards require employers to prepare and maintain records to certify that they have tested or inspected certain types of equipment or machinery, or that they have provided training to employees. OSHA is considering whether to propose to revoke some of these certification provisions, in order to reduce paperwork burdens on employers. Such a proposal would not change the substantive requirements for employers to perform the testing, inspecting, and training.
