New Work Place Guidelines

NPR's Brian Naylor reports that OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is expected to release new work-place guidelines today, designed to help decrease the risk of repetitive motion injuries. Opponents of the regulations say they're too costly for businesses to implement. But supporters of the guidelines point out that eliminating these injuries decreases the time employees spend off the job, and that these regulations can make businesses more efficient.
