E. FEDERAL PROGRAM CHANGE. This instruction describes a Federal program change which affects State programs. Each Regional Administrator shall:
F. BACKGROUND. OSHA's jurisdictional policy with regard to DOE "GOCO" sites has been based on a 1974 letter from the Secretary of Labor to the former Chairman of the AEC, Dixy Lee Ray. Since the AEC had not challenged OSHA's position, which retained OSHA's authority to inspect new construction activity, a tacit acceptance by DOE of OSHA's interpretation of the jurisdictional lines was assumed.
G. INSPECTION POLICY. New construction activities within DOE sites will no longer be considered part of OSHA's jurisdiction. When such sites appear on targeting lists, they shall be deleted. If inspections are underway at such sites, they shall be terminated with appropriate explanations to the employer and to employee representative. Complaints from employees at such sites shall be referred to DOE for resolution.
