WASHINGTON, D.C. | July 8, 2011 -
Dear Mr. Dodaro,

Members learned during the hearing that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently increased its scrutiny of state safety efforts; however, OSHA has failed to determine the impact of its own enforcement program. To ensure the integrity of the nation's workplace safety standards, we are writing to request that the General Accountability Office conduct a review of OSHA using the audit protocols OSHA developed for the Enhanced Federal Annual Monitoring and Evaluation reports (EFAME).
