Manufacturers nationwide know that regulations are instrumental in helping to make workplaces safe, clean and productive. Both Marlin Steel and BTE have stellar workplace safety records. In fact, BTE specializes in developing comprehensive workplace safety plans and works with manufacturers and businesses from coast to coast to ensure employee safety. But manufacturers still struggle to comply with new and existing OSHA regulations, as well as thousands of other environmental and labor regulations from other government agencies that go beyond what makes sense and what is right. Our regulatory system must not be based on politics, but on smart decisions that achieve balance, transparency and fairness.
