CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1915, subpart P

Abstract: The rule updates and revises an important but outdated part of OSHA's shipyard rules. The original rule was adopted by OSHA in 1971 and has remained unchanged since then. A negotiated rulemaking committee was convened on October 15, 1996. Members of the committee included: OSHA, State government, Federal agency, small and large shipyard employers, and maritime and firefighter union representatives. The committee completed work in February 2002, and recommended proposal requirements to OSHA. The Agency published an NPRM based on their recommendations. Comments were received and reviewed and a final rule has been issued.
