Isn’t that supposed to be OSHA’s job?
Isnt that supposed to be OSHAs job?”
It’s amazing that so many farmers have been able to survive and work their farms, putting food on the tables of Americans for so many generations without the help of either OSHA or EPA.
I’m wondering the same thing. Maybe we can get rid of all of the other fed agencies and let the EPA assume the whole mess. Maybe they can do a better job at protecting us from poisoned imported food than the USDA.
Seriously the EPA is one agency that needs to be downsized by at least 50% and the rest reassigned.

The thing that saps profit from companies is when the various departments start duplicating services. It’s an empire turf war. Yes, EPA has no place in this. But soon they’ll have the same number of personnel as OSHA and they’ll be competing to find the most violations. Their rules will conflict and it will double compliance costs.
In a company a strong CEO would slap down the empire builders. But we don’t have that leadership in government.
OSHA just eased regulation on small farms just a week or so back.
don’t encourage them to also get involved with their own additional standards.
