OSHA SETS MEETING FOR NEGOTIATED RULEMAKING ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Fire Protection for Shipyard Employment Negotiated Rulemaking Advisory Committee will meet Sept. 9-10 in Biloxi, Miss.

The open meetings will take place at the Crown Plaza Hotel, 151 Beach Blvd. from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. A meeting on Friday, Sept. 11 will be held if more time is necessary to continue the work.

This is the second regulatory topic since the steel erection proposal to go through the negotiated rulemaking process.

The committee will focus its discussion on definitions, paperwork burdens, costs and benefits, and the current draft of the proposed rule that would reduce potential fire hazards in shipyard industries. It will also discuss how a proposed standard could impact small employers. The committee's goal is to reach a consensus on a draft proposed standard and explanatory preamble that it can recommend to OSHA.

The committee members represent the groups interested in or affected by the outcome of rulemaking in this area. They include representatives from shipyards, labor unions, professional associations and government agencies.

OSHA invites all interested parties to attend. Written comments, data, views or statements for consideration by the committee may be sent to Joseph V. Daddura, Project Officer, Office of Maritime Standards, U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Room N-3621, Washington, D.C. 20210; telephone 202-219-7234 ext. 123. Requests to make an oral presentation before the committee also may be submitted, along with a summary of the proposed presentation, an estimated amount of time desired and a statement indicating the interest the person represents.

Persons needing special accommodations due to a disability should contact Theda Kenney (202) 219-8061, ext. 100.

Notice of this meeting appeared in the Federal Register on Aug. 5, 1998.
