OSHA Sends Walk-Around Rep Final Rule to OMB

Yesterday, the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received a final rule from DOL’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on “Worker Walkaround Representative Designation Process”. The NPRM was published on August 30th, 2023.

According to the Fall 2023 Unified Agenda entry for the rulemaking:

“This rulemaking will clarify the right of workers and certified bargaining units to specify a worker or union representative to accompany an OSHA inspector during the inspection process/facility walkaround, regardless of whether the representative is an employee of the employer, if in the judgment of the Compliance Safety and Health Officer such person is reasonably necessary to an effective and thorough physical inspection.”
