SOURCE: 44 FR 8577, Feb. 9, 1979; 44 FR 20940, Apr. 6, 1979, unless otherwise noted.

EDITORIAL NOTE: At 44 FR 8577, Feb. 9, 1979, and corrected at 44 FR 20940, Apr. 6, 1979, OSHA reprinted without change the entire text of 29 CFR Part 1926 together with certain General Industry Occupational Safety and Health Standards contained in 29 CFR Part 1910, which have been identified as also applicable to construction work. This republication developed a single set of OSHA regulations for both labor and management forces within the construction industry.

Editorial Note: The Federal Register of August 2, 1995, page 39254 issued a Final Rule; correcting amendment. OSHA will maintain the existing fall protection requirements for steel erection activities pending rulemaking that addresses the steel erection industry. This affected 1926.104, 1926.105, 1926.107, 1926.500, and 1926.753.
