Public Citizen Urges OSHA Not to Further Delay Beryllium Rule’s Implementation

March 13, 2017

Read Public Citizen’s statement in response to the release of OSHA’s final rule on beryllium.

See Public Citizen’s other work on beryllium.

Public Citizen filed comments urging the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to reject a proposal to delay the effective date of its final beryllium rule. The proposal would postpone the effective date of the rule by 60 days, from the current date of March 21, 2017 to May 20, 2017, and would therefore put workers’ lives at risk.
