In a testimony at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OHSA’s) informal public hearing on its proposal to revise the ancillary provisions regarding occupational beryllium exposure in construction and shipyard sectors, Public Citizen agreed with OSHA’s decision to rescind its June 2017 proposal to remove ancillary provisions in these sectors, but strongly urged OSHA to reconsider its current proposal to eliminate the requirements for personal protective equipment intended to ease the risk of dermal exposure in areas with beryllium exposures that potentially exceed trace amounts.
