The Trump administration is taking steps to roll back an Obama-era Labor Department safety rule.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a notice Friday proposing to roll back the rule that requires companies with 250 workers or more to submit detailed logs on workplace injuries.
Officials say the original rule violates workers privacy as the information could be subject to Freedom of Information Act requests.
The proposed changes will protect employee information and reduce the burden on employers.
