OSHA Could Fine Workers for PPE Violations

Congress has been working on ways to change the way OSHA works. One of the bills would allow OSHA to fine workers who violate employers' PPE policies. An article on the Occupational Hazards web sites describes three bills that were being considered by the Senate earlier this year.
