    Wyoming State Standards; Approval

The state submitted rules and regulations in response to the following Federal OSHA General Industry Standards, 29 CFR 1910.1030 Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens Final Rule, 56 FR 64004, 12/6/91; 29 CFR 1910.109 Explosives and Blasting Agents, Sec. K; 29 CFR 1910.119 Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals Final Rule, amended by 57 FR 6356, 2/24/92; and 29 CFR 1910.119 Corrections amended by 57 FR 7847, 3/4/92. The above adoptions of Federal Standards have been incorporated in the State Plan and are contained in the Wyoming Occupational Health and Safety Rules and Regulations (General), as required by Wyoming Statute 1977, Section 27-11-05 (a)(viii). The above standards have been reviewed and compared with the relevent Federal Standards, and OSHA has determined that the State Standards are at least as effective as the comparable Federal Standards. OSHA has also determined that the differences between the State and Federal Standards are minimal and the Standards are substantially identical. OSHA therefore approves these Standards.
