I have a colleague putting together a training presentation who is interested in "..the political and socio-economic policies that directly affect how companies release material information to consumers, how chemicals are regulated, and how workers are affected-- during such and such administration, this chemical was designated safe where in previous years it wasn't...a timeline of where chemical law has been and where it has led us to now"

I am looking for a helpful website (or several) that gives an we know, you can spend months going through the history of modern chemical regulation (and push-back from interest groups..)...I am looking for something more condensed and abbreviated. The EPA history page is a deep-dive into many topics; the OSHA history page stops in 2010 (yes, it's true it's supposed to be a 40-year history but the page linking to the timeline writes as if it's current, and besides, there's a lot of non-chemical safety highlights...)...

Many thanks for any suggestions you can make-
