In response to a request from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for additional comments on its proposed standard to protect workers from beryllium, Public Citizen submitted final comments on the standard. Public Citizen’s Dr. Sammy Almashat and Emily Gardner commented on provisions of the rule relating to outdoor workers, such as abrasive blasters, and the medical surveillance of all workers exposed to beryllium. The comments supplemented recent testimony by Almashat and Gardner at a hearing held by OSHA on the proposed standard.
