On March 16th, the House Oversight Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs held a hearing titled: “Regulatory Impediments to Job Creation: The Cost of Doing Business in the Construction Industry”. The hearing consisted of two panels. First: mostly engineering and construction business community and academia. Second: Federal officials from GSA, WH, and OSHA. For those interested in OSHA, the second panel will be of greater interest to you.
The Panel2 is a little more than an hour long. Much of the hearing covers two basic areas. One being PLA (Project Labor Agreements and how are they are being implemented as taxpayer funded projects) and the other generally covering OSHA. But if you want to get to the meat of the hearing from an OSHA perspective, I suggest forwarding and viewing these 2 key sections: 45:00 through about 57:00 and 1:03:00 through the end. It’s a bit of an eye opener considering that it conflicts with previous messages from the Secretary of Labor as well as the White House itself.
