OSHA Suspends Enforcement of Employers’ Duty to Record Adverse Effects to Vaccines

Huh?

Click here, scroll down (or control-F, or click on the link that says vaccine-related) to the heading that reads: “Are adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine recordable on the OSHA recordkeeping logs?” and click on that. You’ll see this:

DOL and OSHA, as well as other federal agencies, are working diligently to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations. OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts. As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination at least through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.

This is fuel for Tucker Carlson conspiracy theories. More information is always good; suppressing information is bad. What are these people thinking?
