NAM Files Suit to Block OSHA “Walkaround” Rule


Last week, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) along with other business organizations filed a lawsuit against the Occupational Safety and Health Organization’s (OSHA) final “Walkaround” rule. The rule, which takes effect May 31, would allow non-employees, including attorneys, competitors, or union representatives to accompany OSHA inspectors during an inspection, regardless of whether the representative is your employee or the facility is a union shop. The OMA submitted comments opposing the rule last October, and supports the lawsuit by NAM. 5/28/2024
