OSHA Changes Emphasize Cooperation

President Clinton has signed into law two bills that mark the first changes to the Occupational Safety & Health Act since the law that created the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) was passed in 1970. One bill bars OSHA from using enforcement and inspection quotas, while the other incorporates the agency's current employer consultation program into the law itself. The intent: Shift the focus of the agency to reducing accidents through cooperation, rather than confrontation.
