IX. Environmental Assessment

This Final Rule has been reviewed in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Guidelines of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ)(40 CFR part 1500), and Department of Labor NEPA Procedures (28 CFR part 11). As a result of this review, the Acting Assistant Secretary for OSHA has determined that the rule will have no significant environmental impact.

The Final Rule focuses on the reduction of accidents and injuries by means of the utilization of specific work practices, procedures, and training. This proposal would not have an impact on air, water, or soil quality, plant or animal life, the use of land, or any other aspects of the environment. As such, this proposal can therefore be categorized as an excluded action according to subpart B, ' 11.10, of the DOL NEPA regulations.
