OSHA Extends Comment Period for Managing Hazardous Chemical Exposures
WASHINGTON, DC – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is extending the comment period on a Request for Information (RFI) on Chemical Management and Permissible Exposure Limits to October 9, 2015.
OSHA issued the RFI on October 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 http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal eRulemaking Portal, by mail or facsimile.
