    Request for Information Concerning the Current Relevancy of the Grain Handling Facilities Rulemaking Record

OSHA is asking a series of questions designed to explore the scope and current relevancy of the grain handling facilities rulemaking record, closed in 1985, on matters such as dust-containment methods and costs. Based on the comments received, OSHA will determine whether the existing record is sufficiently complete and current to support a conclusion on alternatives to applying the 1/8 inch action level housekeeping provision only to priority areas, including the alternative of expanding the action level to the entire grain elevator facility. Information submitted in response to the request must be postmarked by 3/11/91. CONTACT: James Foster (202)523-8151.
