On its website, OSHA is urging employers not to report any side effects workers may experience from COVID-19 vaccines because it would discourage others from getting vaccinated.
Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., spotlighted the statement on Twitter.
An FAQ page for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a branch of the Department of Labor, states OSHA will not enforce the recording requirements until at least next May.
The question: “Are adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine recordable on the OSHA recordkeeping log?”
DOL and OSHA, as well as other federal agencies, are working diligently to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations. OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts. As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination at least through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.
Thanks to Monnie Matthews for alerting us to yet another confirmation that the American Empire has officially transmogrified into a banana republic.9:33 am on October 20, 2021 Email Becky Akers
