OSHA proposes safety standards changes to reduce employer costs

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing 18 changes to the agency’s recordkeeping, general industry, maritime and construction standards. 

The proposed revisions could save employers an estimated $3.2 million per year, the agency says. The changes would include:

• Recognition of electronic posting of 911 emergency services contact information

• Promotion of uniformity in rules for traffic signs, flaggers, and barricades at construction sites
