DG Digest: OSHA proposing GHS ICR that could impact five million private employers

As the nation slides towards Halloween at the end of this coming week, it’s good to remember that even though this year will be different because of the ongoing pandemic, in many places children and families will be out celebrating the holiday.  Kids get extra excited and many costumes may restrict vision, so let’s all be extra careful as we move around our communities.  Let’s all help to make the holiday as safe and fun as we can!  It was a quiet week in the regulatory world; here’s the latest:
