Is EHS liberal or conservative?

When a liberal perspective makes the rules, business is controlled through regulation and taxes.

When a conservative mindset is in power, business is often less regulated and taxes go down.

Liberal government? OSHA emphasizes enforcement.

Conservative government? OSHA focuses on partnerships.

Leaving our own political viewpoints aside for a moment, which is best for EHS?

Is there a “best” or does a mixture of approaches offer the intended result of reduced unintentional losses?

What have you seen in your career to support a viewpoint either way in regard to EHS?

(NOTE: The above contains general descriptors about both liberal and conservative viewpoints and as such, neither are complete or always true.)
