The Senate voted March 22 to rescind an OSHA rule that gives the agency the authority to enforce requirements for employers to maintain records on five years’ worth of workplace injuries. President Trump has said he will sign the Senate resolution, which uses the Congressional Review Act to overturn regulations approved at the end of a previous administration but that have yet to take effect. Obama administration regulations dating back to May 2016 could be subject to CRA action.

If Trump signs the resolution, OSHA will only enforce a requirement for employers to maintain most injury records for six months.
