Re: [1812_ProgressiveCampaigner] Accessing the OSHA web site. maze.
- Thank you for bringing this to my attention but:
a) I, and MANY others on this list, do not live in the US and our comments to OSHA would have no effect; and,
b) the number of your messages on this topic that essentially add no new information is beginning to feel like spam to me.
Moderators, can we get a ruling here?

Subject: [1812_ProgressiveCampaigner] Accessing the OSHA web site. maze.
Below are instructins on how ton access the OSHA regs. and leave
comment. It's a bit of a maze, as it's organized now. Might need to
cut and paste the URL or hunt it up on an earlier post.
The regs are hidden in a filing listing "Explosives"
Here is how you find the correct file in order to send in your
Go to this website:
You have four numbered parameters for your search for the correct
proposed regs that you want to comment on.
Item 1) Select - "Documents Accepting Comments"
Item 2) Scroll to "Department of Labor" ........select "All"
Item 3) Scroll down and select "Proposed Rules"
Item 4) Select "Subject" ......mark the "Exact
Phrase" .....type "Explosives" in the box
Hit the submit button.
The search will bring up:
"Docket ID - OSHA-2007-0032" Document ID – OSHA-2007-0032-0001
It's buried in a set of rules that doesn't even mention ammunition!
Now click on Document ID – OSHA-2007-0032-0001
You will now have before you a copy of the proposed rules.
Five lines down click the "Add Comment" button.
Fill out the box with your personal info and then cut and paste or
write whatever you want in the main box. Be sure to scroll down to
the Government Agency box to Occupational Safety and Health
When you are finished with your comments, hit the Submit button.
They sure don't make it easy!
Please pass the word. This is important!

I count 4 prior messages posted so far on this issue, which does not
seem excessive given the complexity of the situation. However, those
who have no interest in this topic can utilise their "delete" key when
they see the "Subject" line.
For the rest of us, my thought is that 1812 reenacting is and has to
be a joint U.S. - Canadian effort, with major venues and events on
both sides of the Border, and major groups based in each country. As
1812 re-enactors, the Border can be a pain in the butt to be endured
as we venture over it to join *our comrades* in events designed to
remember the War of 1812, honour its heroes (and rogues, even), and
educate the public about it. But since the fact there *is* a border
is perhaps the greatest single result of the War of 1812, I guess it's
something we have to live with! ;>)
Yes, many list members, including myself, live in Canada, but what
goes on in the U.S. on issues that directly affect 1812 reenacting is
of great relevance to us as well. I too do not want to have to shout
out "bang!" unless I have to. As a Canadian, I may not be able to put
my comments on the OSHA website - but I do want to know how this
important issue plays out. I think most list members feel the same.
In short, messages that provide new information on this topic are
definitely not "spam" or anything close to it. Please keep'em coming!
