OSHA extends comment period for managing hazardous chemical exposures in workplace
Comment period extended to Oct. 9, 2015
By Jesse Lawder
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is extending the comment period on a Request for Information on Chemical Management and Permissible Exposure Limits to Oct. 9, 2015.
OSHA issued the RFI on Oct. 10, 2014, requesting stakeholder input about more effective and efficient approaches to address workplace conditions where workers are exposed to chemicals. The agency received multiple requests from stakeholders to extend the comment period to allow them more time to research and formulate responses to questions included in the RFI.
The official notice will be published in the Federal Register. Comments may be submitted electronically at www.regulations.gov, the Federal eRulemaking Portal, by mail or facsimile.
