• Publication Date: 05/16/1986
• Publication Type: Proposed Rules
• Fed Register #: 51:17991-3
• Standard Number: 1915
• Title: Shipyard Employment
• Abstract: As of May 25, 1986 OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS), 1910. 1200, will be applicable to all employment in SIC Classifications 20 through 39, which includes ship building and ship repairing employment. As of that date, shipbuilding and ship repairing will no longer be covered by 1915.97(a)-(d). Since shipbreaking is included in SIC Code 44 and is not currently covered under the scope of 1910.1200, the shipbreaking segment of the industry will continue to be covered by 1915.97(a), (b), and (d). OSHA is proposing to amend 1915.97 to reflect the change in coverage for shipbuilding and ship repairing. OSHA is also proposing that its current requirement in 1915.97(c) for OSHA approval of forms used for Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) in all shipyard employment (shipbuilding, shiprepairing and shipbreaking), be revised. Revision of 1915.97(c) would become effective as of the issuance of the final rule. Comments on the proposal must be postmarked by July 15, 1986.
