    Welding, Cutting and Brazing; Redesignation and Other Non-Substantive Revisions

OSHA is reorganizing its existing part 1910 Standards pertaining to Welding, Cutting and Brazing as a first step in an effort to revise these standards comprehensively. The existing standard is long and not well organized, with paragraphs covering specific operations, such as arc welding, appearing ahead of more useful general provisions, such as for fire protection. The reorganization will facilitate the standard''s use by employers and other users, and will also facilitate the substantive revision of the standards planned for the future. Also included in this reorganization action are some minor non-substantive changes, such as the addition of metric equivalent units.
