Please Contact your Congressional Representative as soon as possible.
The message is:
HR 987 is an anti-worker bill that will block OSHA from protecting workers from ergonomic injuries. Nurses are a primary target for ergonomic injuries (particularly back injuries), members of Congress ought to let OSHA protect workers and vote NO on HR 987
Nurses suffer from debilitating, musculoskeletal disorders, such as back injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis. Nurses have waited several years for OSHA to release this standard, it should not be further delayed.
