OSHA Delays Ergonomics Announcement

Washington, D.C. -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced that it will temporarily postpone its announcement of a plan of action on ergonomics because of the terrorist attacks in New York City and the Pentagon on Sept. 11.

Labor Secretary Elaine Chao was expected to announce last month whether the Department will pursue another ergonomics regulations or a more voluntary approach.
