Airborne v. OSHA   (8th Circuit)

Challenging OSHA's beryllium standard

On May 2, 2017, the NAM and allied associations filed a petition to stay and reopen the beryllium rule with OSHA. On January 9, 2017, OSHA promulgated a new “Final Rule” adopting three new standards regulating beryllium. The NAM and other petitioners filed for review in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Additionally, the NAM requested that the effective date of the standards be delayed for six months, and that the agency re-open the rulemaking record to allow comment on the substantial changes made between issuance of the proposed rule and adoption of the final beryllium standards and to allow the new Secretary of Labor to take office and have adequate time to consider the standards in accordance with freeze and review of all holdover regulations.
