• Title: Concrete and Masonry Construction; Lift-Slab Operations


This notice announces that OSHA is reproposing its Construction
Safety Standards for Lift-Slab Operations. Specific requirements for
lift-slab operations were orginally proposed for revision as part of
the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Concrete and Masonry
Construction. The purpose of the reproposal is to update the
specific lift-slab requirements which have been incorporated by
reference from the ANSI A10.9-1970 "Safety Requirements for Concrete
Construction and Masonry Work". In addition, OSHA proposes to
promulgate and codify directly into the OSHA standards, new
requirements to protect the safety and health of workers engaged in
lift-slab operations. By this revision, OSHA will eliminate any
ambiguities caused by incorporating standards by reference and will
also strengthen the lift-slab requirements by eliminating weaknesses
or gaps in coverage that exist through the reference to the outdated
ANSI standard.
