Last week, the Department of Labor ("DOL") Office of Inspector General ("OIG"), submitted its semi-annual report ("Report") to Congress. In its Report, the OIG expressed "significant concern" about the ability of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA") to protect worker health and safety. According to the Report, "OSHA carries out its enforcement responsibilities through a combination of self-initiated and complaint investigations but can reach only a fraction of the entities it regulates." The OIG noted that, as a result, "OSHA must strive to target the most egregious and persistent violators and protect the most vulnerable worker populations."
