The 6 justices who held OSHA lacks power to address Covid because the virus isn’t limited to the workplace are blinded by their ideology. NO risks are “limited to the workplace” And, as the 3 dissenters wrote, workers have minimum control over risk in their workplace environments
Health risks not limited to the workplace: All addressed w/in OSHA 29CFR. Bloodborne pathogens 1910.130 Lead 1910.1025 Crystalline silica 1926.1153 Asbestos eposure 1910.1001 Hearing conservation 1910.95 This was an ugly usurp of power by a politicized Supreme Court.
Right. So, these issues under OSHA are now at risk of attack from companies who don't want to pay to prevent/contain damage. This is bigger than COVID, it sure seems like this is an extension of GOP "asks" for corp.donors. Set free by Citizens United. Scary!
Exactly, I had posted this risk existed prior to the Supreme Court decision. In 1970 @GOP President Nixon signed legislation creating OSHA. In 1972 there were 10.9 injuries per 100 workers. Now there are 2.8. The Republican Party has abandoned workplace safety and endorsed death.
