Plan is to keep Injury and Illness Prevention Program proposed rule as the highest priority

The National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health (NACOSH) recommended at a June 22 meeting in Washington, D.C., that OSHA keep the Injury and Illness Prevention Program proposed rule as the highest priority in its regulatory agenda by keeping it on a timely schedule as it moves through the regulatory process.
 
NACOSH also expressed support for the efforts of OSHA, in consultation with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), to modernize the system for collection of injury and illness data to assure that it is timely, complete, accurate and both accessible and useful to employers, employees, responsible government agencies and members of the public. NACOSH's other recommendations included NIOSH working with employers and employees to assure completeness and accuracy of injury and illness data and OSHA taking whatever steps are necessary and possible to issue the proposed silica rule without further delay.
