omb -- Small Business Teleconferences on OSHA's Proposed Recordkeeping Rule on work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)

Posted: 29 Mar 2011 08:24:16
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
