This rule revises OSHA's safety standards for Concrete and Masonry
Construction (formerly Concrete, Concrete Forms, and Shoring)
located in Subpart Q of 29 CFR Part 1926. The rule corrects problems
related to the existing regulation, including ambiguities,
redundancies, and gaps in coverage. Additionally, reference to the
American National Standard A10.9-1970, "Safety Requirements for
Concrete Construction and Masonry Work" has been removed and the
applicable requirements from this standard and the more recent ANSI
standard for concrete and masonry work, ANSI A10.9-1983, have been
evaluated and used in developing this final rule. Effective date:
August 15, 1988.
