WASHINGTON (Sept. 10)—A rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration imposing new occupational injury recording and reporting requirements on employers is "conceptually flawed," according to the Rubber Manufacturers Association. The rule, which was issued in January, "would detract from safety systems (already) in place by increasing recordkeeping burdens without enhancing worker safety," Kim Pregartner Weber, RMA director of government affairs, said in a Sept. 4 letter to OSHA. The agency should withdraw and rewrite the rule "based on further analysis and stakeholder input," Weber said.
