Under the terms of the 1978 Court Order in AFL-CIO v. Marshall compliance staffing levels (benchmarks) necessary for a "fully effective"
enforcement program were required to be established for each State operating an approved State plan. In July 1986 Nevada, in conjunction with OSHA,
completed a reassessment of the levels initially established in 1980 and proposed revised compliance staffing benchmarks of 11 safety and 5 health
compliance officers. After opportunity for public comment and service on the AFL-CIO, the Assistant Secretary approved these revised staffing
requirements on September 2, 1987.
