OSHA Extends Public Comment Deadline

By SHRM Online staff Mar 19, 2015

Oct. 9, 2015, is the new deadline for providing comments to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on managing hazardous chemical exposures in the workplace.

The original deadline of April 15, 2015, was extended after OSHA received many requests from stakeholders who wanted more time to research and formulate their responses to questions included in the agency’s request for information.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees.

SHRM Online originally reported on OSHA’s efforts to seek public comment on this issue in an October 2014 news story.

Comments may be submitted electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the federal eRulemaking portal, or by mail or facsimile. The official notice regarding the new deadline will be published in the Federal Register.
