The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced that it will host a series of three teleconferences in April to solicit small business input on its proposed Musculoskeletal Reporting Rule.

Teleconferences will be held the following dates and times:

  • Monday, April 11 at 1:30 p.m. EDT
  • Tuesday, April 12, 2011, at 9 a.m. EDT 
  • Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EDT

In January of 2011, OSHA temporarily withdrew its proposed rule from review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in order to seek additional commentary from impacted industries before proceeding any further on the issue. The scheduled teleconferences are intended to provide small businesses the opportunity to share their experiences in recording work-related musculoskeletal disorders with OSHA and voice concerns about the proposed rule’s potential impact on their respective industries.

Businesses interested in participating in a teleconference should contact Regina Powers at by Monday, April 4 and indicate the preferred teleconference in which they wish to participate. For more information, contact Robert Burt, Director of OSHA's Office of Regulatory Analysis, at (202) 693-1952 or Bruce Lundegren with the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy at (202) 205-6144.
