The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is inviting written comments, including submissions by e-mail for the first time, on its proposal for a revised steel erection standard, and has scheduled a public hearing for Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C.

The proposed standard was published in the Federal Register on Thursday, Aug. 13, 1998. The full text of the proposed standard, and the hyperlink to submit e-mail comments, can be found on the OSHA homepage at www.osha.gov. (Once on the homepage, click on "Federal Register;" click on "date of publication;" and finally, click on "1998.")

The public hearing on the proposal will begin at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 1998, in the Auditorium of the Frances Perkins Building, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20210.

Written comments and notices of intent to appear at the public hearing must be postmarked by Nov. 12, 1998, and all testimony and documentary evidence for the hearing must be postmarked by Nov. 17, 1998.
