The Department of Labor’s Semiannual Regulatory Agenda was published today in the Federal Register. Over the next few days, we’ll be highlighting posts from several DOL Assistant Secretaries regarding their regulatory actions.

Please take a moment to read those posts and to view the materials on our website: During the week of January 3, we will be holding a number of web chats and conference calls focused on the Regulatory Agenda. The schedule and directions regarding how to participate will be included on our website.

Please also watch the short video below highlighting our approach to regulations and how they fit into the Department’s overall mission.

I think you need to look into the ca workcomp policy. I feel were treated like cattle with no feelings. I feel I was not treated fair. The company attorney lied. Now here Iam disabled Im thankful Im a vet, I was told I have PTSD. I can not find a job now. The company fired me after 18 years because I was on restictions I had back surgery. I hate my life. No income SUCKS.

When will OSHA finally get the confined space entry standard for construction published? I have been hearing for years that it would be coming out soon, but nothing. A lot of workers in construction are not well protected because of lack of confined space training, this can be fixed with a comprehensive standard.

Great question. The construction confined spaces final standard has begun the review process within OSHA and the Department of Labor. It also must be reviewed by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) in Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before publication in the Federal Register. The Spring 2011 Regulatory Agenda had an expected date of publication of November, 2011.
