OSHA Withdraws Proposal to Change Consultation Program
Bill Fox – Chairman, Regulatory Affairs Committee

In deference to the objections of small business groups, including NADA, OSHA has withdrawn a proposal to modify rules governing its time-honored On-Site Consultation Program. The proposal could have weakened the “wall” between onsite consultations and OSHA enforcement, thus acting as a disincentive for dealerships to access the program. NADA has long suggested that OSHA On-Site Consultations are one way for dealerships to review their federal or state OSHA compliance and to enhance workplace health and safety.
