The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which had ceased most programmed enforcement actions following Hurricane Harvey, resumed normal enforcement throughout Texas and Louisiana on Tuesday.
Following Hurricane Harvey, OSHA provided compliance assistance and outreach to employers, and workers, in Texas and Louisiana, focusing on cleanup and recovery operations. Thousands of crews and individual workers received job safety and health technical assistance, the agency said.
OSHA retained the right to inspection in cases involving fatalities, catastrophic accidents, employee complaints and employers who repeatedly exposed workers to serious hazards during cleanup and recovery operations.
OSHA will continue compliance assistance and outreach in areas most heavily affected by the hurricane.
