2. Decision

Having reviewed the State's submission, OSHA has determined that the State's standards are at least as effective as the comparable Federal standards, as required by section 18(c)(2) of the Act. OSHA has also determined that the State has adopted the Federal standards by reference and that the standards are identical. OSHA, therefore, approves these standards.

3. Location of Supplement for Inspection and Copying

A copy of the standards supplement, along with the approved plan, may be inspected and copied during normal business hours at the following locations: Office of the Regional Administrator, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 1111 Third Avenue, suite 715, Seattle, Washington 98101-3212; Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division, Department of Insurance and Finance, Salem, Oregon 97310; and the Office of State Programs, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, room N-3700, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210.

4. Public Participation

Under 29 CFR 1953.2(c), the Assistant Secretary may prescribe alternative procedures to expedite the review process or for other good cause which may be consistent with applicable laws. The Assistant Secretary finds that good cause exists for not publishing the supplement to the Oregon State Plan as a proposed change and making the Regional Administrator's approval effective upon publication for the following reasons:

1. The standard amendments are identical to the Federal standard which were promulgated in accordance with federal law including meeting requirements for public participation.

2. The standard amendments were adopted in accordance with the procedural requirements of State law and further public participation would be repetitious.

This decision is effective October 26, 1993.

Authority: (Sec. 18, Pub. L. 91-596, 84 Stat. 1608 (29 U.S.C. 667)).

Signed at Seattle, Washington, this 1st day of June 1993.

On December 28, 1972, notice was published in the Federal Register (37 FR 28628) of the approval of the Oregon plan and the adoption of subpart D to part 1952 containing the decision.

The Oregon plan provides for adoption of State standards which are at least as effective as comparable Federal standards promulgated under section 6 of the Act. Section 1953.20 provides that where any alteration in the Federal program could have an adverse impact on the at least as effective as status of the State program, a program change supplement to a State plan shall be required. The Oregon plan also provides for the adoption of Federal Standards as State standards by reference.

On March 26, 1992, the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was mailed to those on the Department of Insurance and Finance mailing list established pursuant to OAR 436-90-505, and to those on the Department's distribution mailing list as their interest appeared. Both actions failed to elicit a request for hearing. The State's first submission, OAR 437-01-1910.1030, submitted April 28, 1992, was adopted on April 24, 1992, with an effective date of July 1, 1992, under OR-OSHA Administrative Order 5-1992.

The State's amendment was adopted on February 6, 1992, with an effective date of May 1, 1992, through OR-OSHA Administrative Order 2-1992.

2. Decision

Having reviewed the State's submission, OSHA has determined that the State's standards are at least as effective as the comparable Federal standards, as required by section 18(c)(2) of the Act. OSHA has also determined that the standards for Permit-Required Confined Spaces and for Nonionizing Radiation, as well as the standards for Effective Dates, Sources of Standards and Standards Organizations (29 CFR 1910.98, .99, and .100) were adopted by reference and are identical. OSHA therefore approves these standards. OSHA has also determined that the standards for Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens and for Ionizing Radiation are substantially identical to the Federal standards. OSHA therefore approves these standards; however, the right to reconsider this approval is reserved should substantial objections be submitted to the Assistant Secretary.

3. Location of Supplement for Inspection and Copying

A copy of the standards, along with the approved plan, may be inspected and copied during normal business hours at the following locations: Office of the Regional Administrator, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, 1111 Third Avenue, suite 715, Seattle, Washington 98101-3212; Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division, Department of Insurance and Finance, Salem, Oregon 97310; and the Office of State Programs, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, room N-3700, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210.

4. Public Participation

Under 29 CFR 1953.2(c), the Assistant Secretary may prescribe alternative procedures to expedite the review process or for other good cause which may be consistent with applicable laws. The Assistant Secretary finds that good cause exists for not publishing the supplement to the Oregon State Plan as a proposed change and making the Regional Administrator's approval effective upon publication for the following reasons:

1. The standard and the amendment is substantially identical to the Federal standard which was promulgated in accordance with the Federal law including meeting requirements for public participation.

2. The standard and the amendment was adopted in accordance with the procedural requirements of State law which included opportunity for public comments and further public participation would be repetitious.

This decision is effective October 26, 1993.

Authority: Sec. 18, Pub. L. 91-596, 84 Stat. 1608 (29 U.S.C. 667).

Signed at Seattle, Washington, this 26th day of August 1993.

James W. Lake,
Regional Administrator.
