OSHA is asking a series of questions designed to explore the scope and current relevancy of the grain handling facilities rulemaking record, closed in 1985, on matters such as dust-containment methods and costs. Based on the comments received, OSHA will determine whether the existing record is sufficiently complete and current to support a conclusion on alternatives to applying the 1/8 inch action level housekeeping provision only to priority areas, including the alternative of expanding the action level to the entire grain elevator facility.
