CLA responds to EPA’s proposed worker protection standard
The CLA president also expressed concern with the proposal’s “background justifications,” and commented, “While CLA fully supports updating this rule to improve worker protection, we do have concerns about some of the ‘suppositions’ in the proposal’s preamble language, which relies on only part of the epidemiological information available in the public domain, and seems at present to accept a broad and very liberal range of estimates of theoretical harm, as well as supposed under-reporting of worker exposure incidents. CLA will be providing extensive comment on those specific provisions of the proposal.”
