V. AUTHORITY

This document was prepared under the direction of Eula Bingham, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20210.

Accordingly, pursuant to sections 4(b), 6(b) and 8(c) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (84 Stat. 1592, 1593, 1599; 29 U.S.C. 653, 655, 657), Secretary of Labor's Order No. 8-76 (41 FR 25059) and 29 CFR Part 1911, Part 1910 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations is hereby amended by adding a new permanent standard for occupational exposure to inorganic lead at 1910.1025 and by making consequential amendments to Table Z-1 of 29 CFR 1910.1000.

In addition, pursuant to the above authority section 4(b)(2) of the Act (84 Stat. 1592; 29 U.S.C. 653) and the specific statutes referred to in section 4(b)(2), OSHA has determined that this new standard is more effective than the corresponding standards now in Subpart B of Part 1910, in Parts 1915, 1916, 1917, and 1918 of Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations, and also the safety and health standards promulgated under the Walsh-Healy Act (41 U.S.C. 35 et seq.), the Service Contract Act of 1965 (41 U.S.C. 351 et seq.), the Act of August 23, 1958 (33 U.S.C. 941), and the National Foundation on Arts and Humanities Act (20 U.S.C. 951 et seq.). Therefore, to the extent that these corresponding standards are inconsistent with this new standard, they are superseded by the new 1910.1025.

The application of the new standard to the maritime industry is implemented by adding a new paragraph (g) to 1910.10.

Signed at Washington, D.C., this 8th day of November, 1978.

Eula Bingham,

Assistant Secretary of Labor

[43 FR 52952, Nov. 14, 1978]
