1992. LONGSHORING AND MARINE TERMINALS (PARTS 1917 AND 1918)--REOPENING OF THE RECORD (TANDEM LIFTS)

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant. Major status under 5 USC 801 is undetermined.

Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined

Reinventing Government: This rulemaking is part of the Reinventing Government effort. It will revise text in the CFR to reduce burden or duplication, or streamline requirements.

Legal Authority: 33 USC 941; 29 USC 655

CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1918.11

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: OSHA issued a final rule on Longshoring on July 25, 1997 (62 FR 40142). However, OSHA is reopening the record to address the issue of tandem lifts. Tandem lifts involve the lifting of two intermodal containers, secured together with twist locks, at the same time. Because some commenters to the record questioned the safety of allowing such tandem lifts and the record does not contain adequate information to allow the Agency to address this issue, OSHA is reopening the rulemaking record to address this issue only.
