The U.S. government watchdogs for worker safety are turning a blind eye to adverse employee reactions to Covid-19 vaccinations. Employers mandating employee vaccination do not need to keep records of adverse reactions.
In an effort to boost worker vaccination, The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will not require employers to follow its own regulations to record and report worker side-effects from Covid-19 vaccination, the OSHA website says.
The following is printed verbatim from the current OSHA “Frequently Asked Questions” page:
Are adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine recordable on the OSHA recordkeeping log?
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 through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.
According to National Law Review, the new guidance was posted May 21, 2021. NLR offers this interpretation of the rationale behind the OSHA ruling:
“There is no doubt that OSHA’s guidance created a disincentive for employers to mandate that their employees get vaccinated,” the NLR article explains. “With a mandatory vaccination policy, the guidance ensured that employees’ adverse reactions (with arguably little correlation to actual work-related injuries) could end up on a company’s OSHA recordkeeping logs—which could, in turn, negatively affect its insurance rates and, in some industries, its ability to bid for work.”
It is unclear whether state OSHA offices – such as the Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Administration – are bound by the federal OSHA guidelines in this issue.
NLR notes that the revision “is a welcome relief to employers.”
“Recordability of an adverse reaction from an employee’s COVID-19 vaccine was an administrative challenge, and many employers expressed frustration with OSHA’s approach.”
Some observers say that avoiding administration challenges and frustration for employers hasn’t been a strong concern for federal regulatory agencies, and OSHA in particular. As stated plainly by OSHA, the real aim is to avoid discouraging of workplace vax mandates:
“Employers with mandatory vaccination policies felt they were unfairly targeted for having such [recording] policies, and, according to these employers, the guidance seemed counterproductive to OSHA’s goal of eliminating COVID-19 hazards in the workplace in that it discourages the use of mandatory vaccination policies.”
Hooray for Religious Freedom & Conservatism in VERMONT!!!!!!
DIOCESE of BURLINGTON: What you should now do is begin running an ad campaign across Vermont & neighboring NY & MA to allow the word to spread & to “welcome” the prospect of families with young children leaving neighboring states to relocate here in beautiful Vermont!
There’s more than one way to defeat the amorality of “woke-ism”: Teach Your Children Well, as CSNY once told us and have them learn their ABC’s as well as morals, humanity, and ethics all in one place: PAROCHIAL SCHOOLING IN VERMONT! PAID for by VT Taxpayers (happily)!
Shame on OSHA! How hypocritical!
National Law Review reveals in their statement that adverse events after vaccination are real, and that the risk of adverse events is great enough that employers risk insurance rate increases if they are required to report these adverse events. OSHA’s decision to not enforce RECORDING of vaccine injuries only serves to protect employers, government health agencies, and pharmaceutical companies, and serves the purposes of hiding information from the public.
HMMM… NO NOTES, NO TRAIL, NO EVIDENCE, NO DISCUSSION. Will this be the trend
moving forward from all things OSHA? I always thought OSHA was there to protect the employees from harmful work environments. The proposed method gets the injections mandated by the employer but absolves the employer of any potential damages and the federal injection program
meets their needs with no risk as well. Just saying, get the injection if you wish but someone should be responsible for any adverse effects if its been mandated. To date no one is attending
to the collateral damage of the injection program. Does that seem right?
Do you see what’s going on in these comment sections? More and more people are getting informed and doing there own research on the dangerous and ineffectiveness of these vaccines. The criminal pharma cartels will soon need to shutdown the alternative truth telling sites. When that happens they will become desperate and the truth will be validated. According to Robert F Kennedy Jr, a lawyer, Pfizer has NOT been given FDA approval. BioNtech a sister company has been given a vaccine approval for “Comirdity” which is not being produced. This is a bait and switch tactic to dump the dangerous Pfizer vaccine on the remaining population, especially the first responders and the military, thinking that they must take it now that is it “approved”. I’m proud to be a truth seeker. Here is another link in that vain.
There are many more.
