Invitation to participate in three teleconferences to obtain small business input on OSHA's proposed MSD Reporting rule. Dear Small Business Representatives: As you may have heard, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), together with our office (the SBA Office of Advocacy), today announced a series of three teleconferences to obtain small business input on OSHA's proposed MSD Reporting rule, which would add a column to the OSHA 300 Log to record work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Small businesses from around the country are encouraged to participate in the teleconferences, which will be held at the following times: - Monday, April 11 at 1:30 p.m. EDT; - Tuesday, April 12, 2011, at 9 a.m. EDT; and, - Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EDT. OSHA’s seeks input from small business owners and operators concerning their experiences in recording work-related MSDs and how they believe the proposed rule would impact them. Here is a link to OSHA’s Press Release announcing the teleconferences (http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=NEWS_RELEASES&p_id=19458) and a fact sheet outlining the issue (http://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/MSD_Column_Meeting_General_Info.html).
