OSHA Sends Worker Walkaround Final Rule to OIRA

On February 9th, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sent its worker walkaround final rule to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) for final review. The rule would authorize OSHA inspectors to allow union organizers, community activists, or other third parties, who do not officially represent the employees or the government, to accompany OSHA on an inspection of a workplace.  The proposed rule was issued last August, and OSHA received nearly 12,000 comments on the proposal.
