Abstract

Congress intended that the Occupational Safety and Health Act provide a speedy remedy to employees in cases of "imminent danger." But through a legislative quirk the remedy turned out to be a writ of mandamus, which is anything but speedy. The act needs amendment or a judicial remolding to accomplish its purpose.
