Redesigned OSHA Regulations Webpage Provides Easier Navigation

OSHA redesigned their Law and Regulations webpage that features information on standards and rulemaking. Users can now search standards by keyword or number, find a list of key resources, and see the latest updates on active rulemaking. The page also features information buttons to explain regulatory language that may be unfamiliar to some users. Visit the revised page for more information.
