OSHA Extends Public Comment Period

Additional time to offer feedback on safety and health management program

Published: Monday, February 8, 2016 - 15:35

(OSHA: Washington) -- The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is extending the public comment period on an updated version of its voluntary Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.

The current comment period was announced on Nov. 16, 2015, and was to close on Feb. 15, 2016. OSHA is extending the comment period by one week to allow interested parties more time to provide feedback on the draft guidelines. Accordingly, the comment period will now close on Feb. 22, 2016.

For more information on the draft guidelines and provide comment, visit OSHA’s Safety and Health Program Management webpage. Comments can also be posted directly to http://www.regulations.gov/ using Docket #OSHA-2015-0018.

The guidelines are advisory only and do not create any new legal obligations or alter existing obligations created by OSHA standards or regulations.

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 the working men and women of the United States by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.

OSHA’s picture


In 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education, and assistance. OSHA is part of the U.S. Department of Labor. OSHA's administrator answers to the Secretary of Labor, who is a member of the cabinet of the President of the United States. The OSH Act covers most private sector employers and their workers, in addition to some public sector employers and workers in the 50 states and certain territories and jurisdictions under federal authority.
