OSHA -- 2018



National Association of Manufacturers v. OSHA   (D.C. Circuit)

To review OSHA's beryllium standard

The NAM filed a petition to review OSHA's rule, issued Jan. 9, 2017, regulating the use of beryllium in the workplace. The rule differs significantly from the proposed rule and poses significant challenges for manufacturers.

This case was consolidated with EEI v. OSHA on 3/10/17 and transferred to the Eighth Circuit for consolidation with Airborne v. OSHA. For further updates, click here.

This consolidated case was settled on April 24, 2018. OSHA settled the NAM's legal challenge by agreeing to undertake a new rulemaking to propose and implement sweeping changes to the regulation that will benefit companies that manufacture and use beryllium. See also Airborn v. OSHA .
