Report: OSHA health oversight ebbed under Bush

Washington Post, December 28, 2008

Current and former OSHA officials are complaining that lax oversight was a recurrent feature during the Bush administration, as political appointees ordered the withdrawal of dozens of workplace health regulations, slow-rolled others, and altered the reach of its warnings and rules in response to industry pressure. From 2001 to the end of 2007, OSHA officials issued 86% fewer rules or regulations termed economically significant by the Office of Management and Budget than their counterparts did during a similar period under President Bill Clinton.
