In addition, it will propose to modify the final rule by adding certain chemicals included in the Environmental Protection Agency's Risk Management Program but not in the OSHA final rule.

OSHA is also considering issuing an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to address issues related to reactive chemicals raised by the explosion of a chemical plant in Lodi, New Jersey in 1995.
