OSHA Regulation of Low-Exposure Carcinogens: A New Approach to Judicial Analysis of Scientific Evidence
This Article will examine the legal framework governing OSHA risk regulation, the scientific studies and evidence that the judiciary currently accepts for challenging or supporting this regulation, and the effect of this standard of judicial acceptance on OSHA regulation. This Article will then compare the present state of judicial analysis of scientific evidence with alternative analyses in order to determine the most effective means of promoting a level of worker safety regulation that creates the greatest benefit to society within the legal framework established by Congress.
