Steel Erection Negotiated Rulemaking Committee; Re-establishment

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Labor.

ACTION: Re-establishment of the Steel Erection Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee.

SUMMARY: The Secretary of Labor has determined that it is in the public interest to re-establish the Steel Erection Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee (SENRAC) so that the Committee can complete its charge to make recommendations to OSHA on a proposed rule for steel erection activities in construction. The re-establishment of the charter will allow SENRAC to continue its work for a period of two years or until the promulgation of the final standard, whichever occurs first.

DATES: The Charter will be filed on June 1, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Bonnie Friedman, Director, Office of Information and Consumer Affairs, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-3647, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-1999.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. I) and the Negotiated Rulemaking Act, 5 U.S.C. 561 et seq., the Secretary of Labor has determined that the re- establishment of SENRAC is in the public interest, to assist in the development of workplace standards under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.).

SENRAC is composed of 20 members including representatives from labor, industry, small business, public interests and government agencies appointed by the Secretary of Labor.

The Committee is still considering an issue that was a part of its original mandate involving the standards governing slippery metal deck surfaces. The Committee will seek information, data, studies, and views from the public to assist in developing a recommendation on this issue.

Meetings of this committee will be announced in the Federal Register and are open to the public.

Interested parties are invited to submit comments, in quadruplicate, regarding the re-establishment of the committee to the Docket Officer, Docket S-775, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Room N2624, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20210; (202) 219-7894.

Signed at Washington, DC this 29th day of April, 1999.

Alexis M. Herman,
Secretary of Labor.
