Miscellaneous Minor and Technical Amendments

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

ACTION: Final rule; corrections and technical amendments.



SUMMARY: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has initiated a comprehensive line-by-line review of its standards published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) as directed by President Clinton in March 1995. From this review, OSHA has identified a number of sections and provisions of these standards for correction and technical amendment. In this document, OSHA is making corrections, deleting redundant provisions, and clarifying and reorganizing various other provisions throughout OSHA's standards in the CFR. This document does not change the substantive requirements of the standards.

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 6, 1996. The incorporations by reference of the consensus standards listed in Secs. 1926.1002, 1926.1003, and 1928.51 are approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of May 6, 1996.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In March 1995, the President directed Federal agencies to undertake a line-by-line review of their regulations to determine where they could be simplified or clarified. OSHA initiated such a review, and as a result completed a document on May 31, 1995, entitled "OSHA's Regulatory Reform Initiatives." That document detailed the Agency's findings as to which regulations could be deleted or revised to improve compliance by employers and, consequently, provide enhanced occupational safety and health protection to employees. This regulatory improvement process involves revocation of outdated and obsolete provisions, consolidation of repetitious provisions, and clarification of confusing language.

The Agency is beginning this process with this document, by addressing minor clarifications, corrections, and technical amendments to OSHA standards. These do not require notice and comment. A detailed discussion of these actions is provided below under "Summary and Explanation." In addition, the Agency plans to undertake several more regulatory reform initiatives. OSHA is developing a proposal to make substantive changes in various standards to diminish regulatory burdens without reducing worker protections. OSHA also intends to take actions to reduce paperwork and shorten and simplify its standards that are codified in the CFR.

II. Summary and Explanation

A. Merging the 13 Carcinogen Standards Into Single Standards in 29 CFR Parts 1910, 1915, and 1926

Thirteen similar standards for carcinogenic chemicals are codified in subpart Z of OSHA's General Industry standards at 29 CFR 1910.1003 through 1016. The regulatory requirements for each are similar, with the few differences based principally on the corrosiveness of the substance, or its physical state at room temperature. Because of their similarities, OSHA has decided to combine the 13 standards into a single rule. Accordingly, OSHA is issuing a technical amendment combining the 13 carcinogenic chemical standards into a single consolidated standard at Sec. 1910.1003, entitled "13 Carcinogens." No substantive revisions have been made to any provisions of the 13 carcinogenic chemical standards. Where requirements vary for different chemicals, paragraphs are being added to Sec. 1910.1003 to include these differing requirements.

The standards for the 13 carcinogenic chemicals found under 29 CFR 1915 and 1926 are being consolidated in the same manner. They be consolidated under single standards for each of these parts, 1915.1003 and 1926.1103, titled "13 Carcinogens."

B. Consensus Standards and Organizations and Incorporation by Reference Statements in 29 CFR Part 1910

Among the provisions being removed from the CFR are the following 12 General Industry sections that list the addresses of consensus organizations: 29 CFR 1910.40, 1910.70, 1910.100, 1910.116, 1910.140, 1910.148, 1910.171, 1910.190, 1910.222, 1910.247, 1910.257, and 1910.275. These addresses are being consolidated into Sec. 1910.6, titled "Incorporation by Reference." The addresses have been updated and may be used to obtain copies of the original consensus standards that were incorporated into these sections. Consistent with this revision, Sec. 1910.6 is being amended to include a list of the consensus standards incorporated by reference into the CFR, as well as references to the OSHA-related CFR sections developed from each of these incorporated consensus standards.

Copies of the original consensus standards are also available from OSHA area offices.

The following 14 sections of 29 CFR part 1910 contain only identifying information regarding the consensus standards which were originally used as sources for OSHA standards: 29 CFR 1910.31, 1910.39, 1910.69, 1910.99, 1910.115, 1910.139, 1910.150, 1910.153, 1910.170, 1910.189, 1910.221, 1910.246, 1910.256, and 1910.274. Because OSHA has revised and updated many of its standards over the past 25 years, the references to the original sources for these standards are no longer valid. Accordingly, OSHA is deleting these references. The parenthetical note entitled "Source" at the bottom of Sec. 1910.68(e)(3) is being removed as well.

In this document, OSHA is also consolidating all "incorporation by reference" (IBR) statements into Sec. 1910.6. These statements are currently scattered throughout part 1910. The paragraphs affected by this change are: Sec. 1910.133(b) (1) and (2), 1910.135(b) (1) and (2), 1910.136(b) (1) and (2), and Sec. 1910.266 (d)(3)(iv), (e)(2)(i), (f)(3) (ii) through (iv), (f)(4), and (f)(5)(i).

C. Effective Dates Codified Under 29 CFR Part 1910

Several OSHA standards published in the CFR provide information regarding the date the standard was to become effective. In general, effective dates are not included or retained as part of the CFR. In addition, the effective dates published in the CFR under these provisions have expired. OSHA therefore is revising or deleting the effective date provisions of the following standards, as appropriate: Secs. 1910.17, 1910.66, 1910.114, 1910.145, 1910.157, 1910.158, 1910.182, 1910.216, 1910.217, 1910.261, 1910.265, and 1910.272.

D. Editorial Corrections to 29 CFR part 1910

The following miscellaneous editorial corrections are being made to 29 CFR part 1910:

1. Because internal units within a CFR section are to be referred to as "paragraphs," the phrase "subdivision (A) of this subdivision" in Sec. 1910.68(c)(7)(ii)(B) is being revised to read "paragraph (c)(7)(ii)(A) of this section," while the phrase "subparagraph (6)(ii) of this paragraph" in Sec. 1910.94(c)(4)(iii) is being changed to read "paragraph (c)(6)(ii) of this section."

2. In the first sentence of Sec. 1910.20(c)(13)(i), the word "least" is being changed to "latest."

3. In Sec. 1910.94, the term "[Reserved]" at the beginning of paragraph (c)(5)(iii) is being removed, and the succeeding designation letter "(A)" is being moved immediately to the right of the "(iii)" at the beginning of the paragraph.

4. The table titled "OSHA Onsite Consultation Project Directory" in Appendix G to Sec. 1910.95 is being deleted. Since this table was first published, numerous revisions have occurred to the entries cited in the directory, making the information in this table obsolete.

5. In two places (Appendix H to Sec. 1910.95 and Appendix D to subpart L of 29 CFR part 1910), an out-of-date telephone number for OSHA's Technical Data Center, "523-9700," is being changed to the current number, "219-7500."

6. In Sec. 1910.120, the comma that runs into the beginning of the word "uncontrolled" near the middle of paragraph (a)(1)(i) is being removed to improve clarity.

7. In paragraphs (d)(2), (d)(4), and (d)(6) of Sec. 1910.145, the paragraph designation "(i)" is being removed because these paragraphs have no subsequent designations.

8. In the listing for OSHA's Publications Office under Appendix B to Sec. 1910.177, an out-of-date telephone number, "523-9667," is being changed to the current number "219-4667."

9. In table O-10 following Sec. 1910.217(f)(4), the fourth entry in the first column that reads "1 1/2 to 5 1/2 " is being changed to read "3 1/2 to 5 1/2."

10. In Sec. 1910.217(g), the title "Director of the Office of Standards Development" is being changed to read "Director of the Directorate of Safety Standards Programs."

11. In Sec. 1910.440, the phrase "Health, Education and Welfare" in paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(5)(ii) is being revised to read "Health and Human Services."

E. Revisions to 29 CFR Part 1926 Standards Incorporated From 29 CFR Part 1910

Minor corrections and technical amendments also are being made to several 29 CFR part 1926 (Construction Industry) standards that were incorporated from 29 CFR part 1910 (General Industry) in a previous rulemaking notice (June 30, 1993, 58 FR 35076). This previous action made no substantive changes to the incorporated standards, but the publication of these standards introduced various typographical errors and omissions. In addition, some changes were made to properly reflect the legal history and their adoption under the relevant statutes.

F. Miscellaneous Technical Amendments to 29 CFR Part 1926

On April 20, 1982 (47 FR 16986), OSHA published a final rule that consolidated standards addressing ship repair, shipbuilding, and shipbreaking, located under 29 CFR parts 1915 through 1917, into 29 CFR part 1915 ("Shipyard employment"). Paragraph (b) of Sec. 1926.30 ("Shipbuilding and ship repairing"), however, still refers to old parts 1916 and 1917. These references are being corrected.

Several changes are being made to Sec. 1926.31 to provide current addresses and cross-references.

G. Revisions to Standards Addressing Roll-Over Protection Structures for Tractors Under 29 CFR Parts 1926 and 1928

Various provisions of OSHA standards that specify minimum test procedures and performance requirements for manufacturers who design and construct roll-over protective structures (ROPS) and overhead protection attached to tractors used in construction work and agricultural operations are being removed. OSHA is removing these detailed specifications from the CFR because they are design criteria generally not useful to employers. The Agency is replacing them with references to the source consensus standards from which they were developed. The references will be provided in footnotes to the relevant provisions of the OSHA standards. The substantive requirements are unchanged.

This rulemaking involves the following amendments:

1. Paragraphs (c) through (i), and (k) of Sec. 1926.1002 are deleted and replaced with a reference to Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) consensus standard J334a in paragraph (a)(1) of Sec. 1926.1002.

2. Paragraphs (c) through (g) of Sec. 1926.1003 are deleted and replaced with a reference to SAE J167 in paragraph (a)(1) of Sec. 1926.1003.

3. Sections 1928.52 and 1928.53 and Appendix B to subpart C of 29 CFR part 1928 are deleted and replaced by references to SAE J168 and J334 and American Society of Agricultural Engineers consensus standards 306.3 and 336.1 in paragraph (b)(1) of Sec. 1928.51.

H. Revisions to the Cadmium Standard Under 29 CFR Part 1928

The cadmium standard for the Agriculture Industry, Sec. 1928.1027, duplicates the cadmium standard of 29 CFR part 1910. The Agency has determined that publishing the full text of the standard under part 1928 is unnecessary because the requirements of the standard can be found in the General Industry cadmium standard (Sec. 1910.1027). A cross-reference from the agriculture industry standards to Sec. 1910.1027 is being inserted in place of the full text of the standard. OSHA also is adding paragraph (a)(6) to Sec. 1928.21 specifying that the cadmium standard under part 1910 is applicable to the agriculture industry.

I. Agreements With and Grants to States

The primary purpose of 29 CFR part 1901 has been to interpret and apply section 18(h) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the Act). Since the State agreements that were permitted under section 18(h) have been obsolete since 1972, most of part 1901 is no longer necessary. Therefore OSHA is revoking all of part 1901, with the exception of the first sentence of Sec. 1901.2. That sentence interprets the preemption language in section 18(a) of the Act and is relied on by courts in preemption cases. That language is being moved to become the fourth sentence in paragraph (a) of 29 CFR 1902.1.

Part 1950 of title 29 CFR interprets and applies section 23 (a) and (b) of the Act, which authorizes the Secretary of Labor to make grants to the States for certain development and planning purposes with regard to occupational safety and health State plans. As the statutory authority for making these grants to the States expired in 1973, it is being revoked.

Part 1951 of title 29 CFR contains procedures for making grants to the States to assist them in administering and enforcing programs for occupational safety and health contained in State plans. Since financial grant rules and regulations can be found in 29 CFR part 97 and in Office of Management and Budget Circular A-102, part 1951 is redundant and is being revoked.

III. Exemption From Notice and Comment Procedures

OSHA has determined that this rulemaking is not subject to the procedures for public notice-and-comment rulemaking specified under section 4 of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) or sec. 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 655(b)) because this rulemaking does not affect the substantive requirements or coverage of the standards involved. This rulemaking does not modify or revoke existing rights and obligations, and new rights and obligations have not been established. Under this rulemaking, the Agency is merely correcting or clarifying existing regulatory requirements. OSHA therefore finds that public notice-and-comment procedures are unnecessary within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and 29 CFR 1911.5.

IV. Clearance of Information Collection Requirement

On August 29, 1995, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published a new 5 CFR part 1320 (60 FR 44978), implementing the information collection provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA 95) (Pub. L. 104-13, May 22, 1995). Part 1320, which became effective on October 1, 1995, sets forth procedures for information collection requirements. The Act changed the previous law in several significant ways. Among other things, it redefined "collection of information" to include third-party and public disclosures.

To be in compliance with PRA 95 by October 1995, the Department of Labor published a document in the Federal Register seeking generic clearances from OMB for a number of existing information collection requests (60 FR 35228, July 6, 1995). This was necessary as third-party disclosure paperwork burden hours were previously deleted from the Information Collection Requests as adjustments resulting from the Dole, Secretary of Labor et al. v. United Steelworkers of America, Opinion of the Court 494 U.S. 26, 33 (1990) decision. The 13 carcinogen standards' information collection requests were part of this overall generic clearance.

On September 19, 1995, OMB approved the information collection requirements contained in the 13 carcinogen standards until August 31, 1996. Each of the 13 carcinogen standards currently set out the OMB approval number at the end of the corresponding CFR section. While this final rule combines the 13 carcinogens under a single CFR section (which appears in OSHA's standards as Secs. 1910.1003, 1915.1003, and 1926.1103), it does not affect or change the burden of those requirements. The OMB numbers for the 13 carcinogens standards are unchanged, and being are listed as a group at the end of the combined carcinogens section.

The 13 separate information collection requests will be combined into one information collection request when submitting the package to OMB for approval later this year. This package will be submitted under OMB number 1218-0085.

Signed at Washington, D.C., this 8th day of February, 1996.

Joseph A. Dear,

Assistant Secretary of Labor.

Accordingly, pursuant to sections 4, 6, and 8 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 653, 655, 657), sec. 107 of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (40 U.S.C. 333), and Secretary of Labor's Order No. 1-90 (55 FR 9033), title 29 CFR chapter XVII is amended as set forth below.

PART 1901--[REMOVED AND RESERVED]

1. Part 1901 is removed and reserved.

PART 1902--STATE PLANS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND ENFORCEMENT OF STATE STANDARDS

1. The authority citation for part 1902 continues to read as follows:

Authority: Secs. 8 and 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 657 and 667.

2. Paragraph (a) of Sec. 1902.1 is revised to read as follows:

1902.1 Purpose and scope.

(a) This part applies the provisions of section 18 of the Williams-Steiger Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (hereinafter referred to as the Act) relating to State plans for the development and enforcement of State occupational safety and health standards. The provisions of the part set forth the procedures by which the Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health (hereinafter referred to as the Assistant Secretary) under a delegation of authority from the Secretary of Labor (Secretary's Order No. 12-71, 36 FR 8754, May 12, 1971) will approve or reject State plans submitted to the Secretary. In the Act, Congress declared it to be its purpose and policy "* * * to assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions and to preserve our human resources" by, among other actions and programs, "* * * encouraging the State to assume the fullest responsibility for the administration and enforcement of their occupational safety and health laws. Section 18(a) of the Act is read as preventing any State agency or court from asserting jurisdiction under State law over any occupational safety or health issue with respect to which a Federal standard has been issued under section 6 of the Act. However, section 18(b) provides that any State that desires to assume responsibility for the development and enforcement therein of occupational safety and health standards relating to issues covered by corresponding standards promulgated under section 6 of the Act shall submit a plan for doing so to the Assistant Secretary.
