OSHA “Walkaround Rule” Challenged

On May 21, NPGA ally—the National Association of Manufacturers—filed federal suit to challenge the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s final rule amending the Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process (Walkaround Rule).  The Walkaround Rule allows an unlimited number of third parties, such as union representatives, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and community organizers, to accompany OSHA inspectors on safety inspections.  More information is available here.
