    Default Trump Labor Dept. yanks added beryllium exposure protections

    And no matter what Trump does, he will be defended on this site by a select few. I find that amusing as I remember how many of us "Libs" clearly spoke about Obama not doing enough in the beginning to help unions. Even though we voted for him, and approved of him as a president. I guess that is the difference between "Libs" and the far right wing conservatives. We don't see a God there in the White House. We see things for what they are.
    WASHINGTON (PAI) — The Trump administration’s Labor Department has formally yanked special added beryllium exposure protections for construction and longshore workers, saying the issue needs further study. It set a 60-day deadline for comments on its action.

    The decision, published in the June 27 Federal Register, drew blasts from worker safety and health advocates, and the AFL-CIO had criticized it beforehand. Unions that represent construction and longshore workers are still studying DOL’s statement and deciding how to respond.
    Under OSHA’s plan, all workers, including longshore and construction workers, still would have to be better protected from exposure to beryllium, which causes chronic lung disease. The better protection is still expected to cut worker exposure by at least half.

    OSHA yanked the construction and shipyard extra rules because of “evidence that exposure in these industries is limited to a few operations and has information suggesting that requiring the ancillary provisions broadly may not improve worker protection and be redundant with overlapping protections in other standards.”
    So is it really needed or is this an opportunity to attached to Trump

    Had this been during the Obama administration it would have been titled "Labor Dept yanks added beryllium exposure protections". No mention of Obama

    Ask someone with lung cancer from beryllium exposure Strappy. I'm sure they feel the protections are necessary.

    You don't think anyone would say a word? Not even your union hating sources? I wonder why?

    Overlapping like the reports that Trump is sidelining? Right? Keeping track of all those exposed to that crap that become ill? I wonder just who is involved with the coal slag market? You know? That nasty stuff that we use in little things like fracking and abrasive blasting? Wouldn't be anyone that donated to the "Trump screw the American unions fund" would it?

    Now think for a minute Strappy. Fracking was increased during the Obama administration. More protections for the workers were also. Seems it's all about the bottom line with the Trump administration and to hell with worker safety.

    This is one thing I don't agree with Trump on and just recently sent an email to the White House.
