The steel erection rule, which took effect January 18, 2002, is the first OSHA safety standard developed under the Negotiated Rulemaking Act of 1990 and the Department of Labor's negotiated rulemaking policy. With negotiated rulemaking, a committee composed of representatives from interested parties potentially affected by the rule develops a proposed standard. OSHA then publishes the proposal, holds public hearings, and receives written information from the public. After reviewing all available evidence, OSHA issues a final standard.
Members of the Steel Erection Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee (SENRAC) developed the steel erection rule. The committee, which began negotiations in June, 1994, included representatives from organized labor, industry, public interests, and government. The parties worked out contrasting positions and sought common ground through face-to-face discussions. By airing disputed issues early in the rulemaking process, the committee helped to develop a better rule that employers are more likely to comply with-reducing the need for enforcement and litigation activities.
