Public Citizen submitted comments strongly urging the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) not to: 1) finalize its proposal to rescind, for construction and shipyard workers, all ancillary provisions from its final 2017 beryllium rule; 2) delay for one year the deadline for compliance by construction and shipyard employers with the final beryllium standard; or 3) abdicate its duty to protect workers by refusing to enforce the final beryllium rule for construction and shipyard workers while this latest proposal is pending.
