The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created more than thirty years ago to make the American workplace more safe. And officials there say that deaths and injuries on the job have declined on their watch. But critics say OSHA has dropped the ball when it comes to safety regulations for everything from oil refineries to popcorn plants.

That’s the description of the segment of today’s edition of the always interesting Kojo Nnamdi Show, starting at 1:00 PM EST. I’ll be one of Kojo’s guests, along with Jim Morris, the author of the terrific National Journal article Slow Motion, about OSHA’s failure to address obvious and serious workplace hazards; Project Manager, The Center for Public Integrity; Marc Freedman, Director of Labor Policy, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; and David Sarvadi, Attorney, Keller and Heckman.

Kojo’s show is broadcast on WAMU-FM (88.5) in the Washington area, or can be heard at We’ll be taking questions, so please call in.
