Re: Ergonomics program becomes final Rule

I thought that Bush nixed this whole ergonomic issue as well (or buried it
under the guise of 'needs further review'.)

  It was based on Bush's approach on the ergonomic issue that we were
hoping he would do the same thing to HIPPA (the insurance
portability/accountability/privacy act)  but, HIPPA did get passed and we
have two years to comply.

Has this really gone into effect, written and then recalled?  Something
about huge expense to employers, but I may be incorrect.  Seems when Bush
got into office and administration was not going to be put into effect, not
sure on how the laws work here.

Enlighten me please.
