OSHA extends comment period for managing hazardous chemical
exposures in workplace

WASHINGTON – 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 http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal eRulemaking Portal, by mail or facsimile.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA's role is to ensure these conditions for America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
