OSHA’S DEAF EARS

I recently read an article that I find disturbing.   The Chemical Safety Board (CHB) has been making recommendations to OSHA relating to combustible dust that is falling on OSHA’S DEAF EARS.    Future tragedies in the United States can be avoided if OSHA acts on the CHB recommendations.   The article has a brief slideshow showing various real life tragedies that are the basis for the CHB recommendations.  Instead, these recommendations are falling on OSHA’S DEAF EARS!

When is OSHA going to become an organization that is meaningful to our modern day society?   OSHA has become a bureaucratic organization that has not kept up with the times.   It is obvious that our government struggles with running OSHA as it does with the post office, social security, medicare, etc. (this list is embarrassingly too long to name).   When are we going to make meaningful changes?

Future tragedies can be avoided if OSHA will act and not let recommendations from the CHB fall on OSHA’S DEAF EARS.   I am sending a letter to my congressman urging them to act.   What are you going to do?
