One of the things Trump has finally accomplished for the economy is shedding needless regulations which hold back business. Or at least that what many believe. Of course it’s not true. Health and Safety regulations build economic strength, according to author Jonathan D Karmel whose new book is Dying to Work: Death and Injury in the American Workplace. And it’s not just the poster-children for workplace deaths and injury: miners, construction workers, petroleum workers. From grocery stores to hotel workers, there are easily preventable incidents. We pay trillions to fight terrorism, yet there are many times more work place deaths which we ignore. It’s not the latest shiny object but there are those intent on cutting back OSHA regulations (passed under Nixon in 1970), falsely claiming regulations are job killers. You can guess the players.
