Effective Date of Beryllium Rule Pushed Back


OSHA is proposing to delay the effective date of the rule entitled Occupational Exposure to Beryllium, from March 21 to May 20 to allow for further review and consideration. The extension is in keeping with a Jan. 20 White House memorandum that directed the review of any new or pending regulations. However, per OSHA, it would not affect the compliance dates of the beryllium rule, which begin on March 12, 2018.  3/2/2017
