SENRAC To Meet July 24 To Present Steel Erection Proposal To OSHA

The Steel Erection Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee (SENRAC) will meet July 24 in Washington, D.C., to sign its consensus proposal for a revised steel erection standard and present it to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The public signing ceremony will be held at 1 p.m in Room S-2508, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20210.

SENRAC was established in May 1994 to negotiate issues involved in revising OSHA's steel erection standard. The committee includes representatives of organized labor, industry, public interests and government. The committee began negotiations in mid-June 1994 and has met 11 times since then. In December 1995 it reached consensus on a proposed standard. In the ensuing months, OSHA prepared a preamble and a notice of proposed rulemaking to support the SENRAC text. After SENRAC has presented its consensus document to OSHA, a notice of proposed rulemaking will be published in the Federal Register.

No advance registration is required to attend the meeting. Persons with disabilities who need special accommodations should contact Philip J. Harter, the committee facilitator, by July 17. He can be reached at Suite 404, 2301 M Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20037; telephone (202) 887-1033, fax (202) 887-1036.

Notice of the meeting will be published in the Friday, July 11, 1997 Federal Register.
