WASHINGTON (Nov. 22)—The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is joining with the Small Business Administration´s Office of Advocacy to spread the word to small business owners about OSHA´s new ergonomics guidelines. The agreement formalizes the Office of Advocacy´s role in helping to inform small businesses about the guidelines. OSHA announced last April an ergonomics plan that seeks to reduce workplace injuries through a combination of guidelines, enforcement, outreach, assistance and research. The tire industry supports the plan, but the unions prefer the tougher Clinton administration rule that Congress killed in March 2001.
