February snow prompts deadline extensions
Severe winter weather on the East Coast last month has led OSHA to extend at least two stakeholder deadlines.
OSHA proposed a rule on Jan. 29 that would restore a musculoskeletal disorders column to the OSHA 300 log. The original deadline for submitting comments was March 15, but OSHA this week extended the deadline to March 30.
OSHA also has reopened and extended the deadline for nominations for the Federal Advisory Council on Occupational Safety and Health. The new deadline is March 31.
