â€œThe vast majority of NAHBâ€™s members own small businesses and often find themselves unequipped to negotiate OSHAâ€™s reams of regulations and requirements. This legislative package will help to reduce some of the regulatory burdens faced by our members when they try to work within OSHAâ€™s complicated system of due process, and will provide OSHA with greater flexibility to respond to small businesses without sacrificing workplace safety,â€ said NAHB President David Wilson.
The four bills are identical to OSHA reform measures passed by the House last spring.
â€œThese bills would improve workplace safety and help to level the playing field for small businesses that seek to defend themselves in OSHA actions that are brought against them,â€ said Wilson. â€œWe urge the House to approve these measures and call on the Senate to introduce similar legislation.â€
