Urge Congress to Support H.J.Res. 83

Help AGC to Repeal OSHA’s Effort to Extend Statute of Limitations

for Recordkeeping Violations; Extension Fails to Improve Safety

Urge Congress to Support H.J.Res. 83

Congress will soon consider repealing a rule that exposes business owners to unfair liability for honest and inadvertent paperwork mistakes related to recordkeeping. The rule – which extends the statute of limitations on recordkeeping violations from six months to five and a half years – does not improve the safety or health of your company’s workers.


The rule was issued by OSHA to get around a court decision involving a construction company that challenged an OSHA citation for a recordkeeping violation issued beyond six months. Two federal courts have since rebuked OSHA’s theory for issuing recordkeeping citations after six months. This rule, issued by the Obama administration in December, directly contradicts both the courts and Congress.

Contact your members of Congress and urge them to support swift passage of H.J.Res. 83 to stop OSHA’s abuse of authority.

TAKE ACTION!
