Abstract: OSHA's standards for woodworking machinery (29 CFR 1910.213) have not been updated since their adoption in 1971. The corresponding industry consensus standards have been updated several times in the intervening years. OSHA intends to work with affected stakeholders to develop an updated woodworking machinery standard that reflects the technological advances and changes in occupational safety and health practices that have taken place since then. The revised standard will take account of approaches included in the most recent voluntary consensus standard.
