Title: • Oregon State Plan -- Resumption of Concurrent Federal Enforcement of Temporary Labor Camp Standard

Abstract: OSHA will propose to reassert concurrent federal enforcement authority in Oregon under section 18 of the OSH Act with regard to its temporary labor camp standard (29 CFR 1910.142). This action would be taken in response to deficiencies in the temporary labor camp standards adopted and enforced by Oregon under its OSHA-approved occupational safety and health state plan. This Federal authority would be exercised jointly by OSHA and by the Wage and Hour Division of the Employment Standards Administration, under a January 1997 delegation of authority by the Secretary of Labor. Following a public comment period, OSHA will make a final determination as to whether to reassert concurrent Federal enforcement authority in Oregon regarding temporary labor camps. The Oregon State plan is administered by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (OR-OSHA) of the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services.
