WASHINGTON (March 6)—The Rubber Manufacturers Association has joined the hundreds of industry groups lobbying Congress to support the effort to pass a resolution disapproving the Occupational Safety and Health Administration´s ergonomics standard. "We believe this costly rule is based on insufficient scientific information," wrote RMA President Donald B. Shea in a letter to key senators. The rule became final Jan. 16, with an implementation date in October for U.S. industries. Supporters of the resolution hoped to bring it to a vote in the Senate as early as March 7.
