Senate committee rejects ergonomics mandate

Order Reprints

The Senate Appropriations Committee will not make the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) create another "one-size-fits-all" ergonomics regulation.

"The proposed mandate could have resulted in a replay of an inflexible, costly and scientifically questionable ergonomics regulation that Congress rejected in 2001," say Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) officials.

However, the committee did give $2 million to OSHA for use if the group decides to create a new ergonomics rule within two years, the RMA reports.
