    Addendum to Operational Status Agreement, Level of Federal Enforcement, California State Plan

Announces the signing of an 11/8/90 addendum to the 10/5/89 Operational Status Agreement between OSHA and the California Department of Industrial Relations (CAL/OSHA). On 9/21/90, CAL/OSHA began enforcing requirements identical to the Federal OSHA worker safety rules governing hazardous waste and emergency response operations pending action by the CAL/OSHA Standards Board to adopt a comparable standard. Under the terms of the 11/8/90 addendum to the Agreement, Federal OSHA withdrew from and CAL/OSHA assumed full enforcement authority for protection of employees engaged in hazardous waste operations in the State.
