Department of Consumer and Business Services, Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division, Chapter 437

Rule Caption: Adopt federal changes in construction to demolition and underground construction.

Adm. Order No.: OSHA 1-2013

Filed with Sec. of State: 2-14-2013

Certified to be Effective: 2-14-13

Notice Publication Date: 1-1-2013

Rules Amended: 437-003-0001

Subject: This rulemaking is to keep Oregon OSHA in harmony with recent changes to Federal OSHA’s standards.

 Oregon OSHA amendments to 1926.800 as published in the August 17, 2012 Federal Register. This will bring all crane and derrick use in construction work under one subdivision CC, and it will correct the technical errors in the previous rule that substantively altered the demolition and underground construction provisions, and replace subparagraphs 1926.800(t)(1) through (4). The revisions made by this rulemaking will enable Oregon OSHA to cover all cranes and derricks used in construction under subpart CC. These revisions implement the original purpose of the rule and will benefit both employees and employers. Also, in this Federal Register are reference changes to 1926.856 and 1926.858; and will remove subdivision DD.

 In December 2012, Oregon OSHA proposed to make the Federal OSHA amendments published in the November 9, 2012 Federal Register, in 1926.1400 to broaden the exemption for digger derricks. However, on February 7, 2013, OSHA published in the Federal Register a withdrawal of the direct final rulemaking (November 9, 2012 Federal Register) and instead, it is moving forward with proposed rulemaking that was published at the same time as the direct final. Therefore, Oregon OSHA is not proceeding with rulemaking concerning the digger derricks exemption at this time.

 Oregon OSHA makes these amendments in construction.

Subject: Personal Protective Equipment in Construction:

 Oregon OSHA is revising the personal protective equipment (PPE) sections of its construction standards regarding requirements for eye and face protective devices, head protection, foot protection, extremities and torso to include protective clothing, respiratory devices, and protective shields and barriers.

 Oregon OSHA updated the Division 2, subdivision I, Personal Protective Equipment references in its regulations on December 8, 2011. The update referenced more recent editions of applicable national consensus standards and removed requirements that employers prepare and maintain written training certification records. Oregon OSHA repealed all of Division 2/I rules with some exceptions and replaced them with a new Oregon initiated rule, 437-002-0134 Personal Protective Equipment, that includes sections covering the scope/application, hazard assessment, equipment, training, payment, fall protection, clothing, high visibility garments, and eye, head, foot, leg, hand and skin protection.

 The change was mostly a format change that simplified the existing text while making little change to the overall rule requirements with a few exceptions. Oregon OSHA modified the hazard assessment requirement to clarify that employers must identify hazards to the entire body, including the torso and extremities, when performing the assessment. The assessment previously was limited to head, hands, eyes and face and foot protection.

 We are removing the current PPE requirements in various locations of the construction standard and replacing them with the same requirements that are in General Industry standards of Division 2, Subdivision I. These requirements (with the exception of a written assessment certification) will be substantially similar allowing for greater consistency in construction and general Industry.

 The design requirements for eye and face-protective devices, head protection, and foot protection are currently the same in Division 2 General Industry, Shipyard Employment, Marine Terminals, Longshoring, and Division 3 Construction. These revisions are a continuation of Oregon OSHA’s effort to update consensus and industry standards.

 Personal Protective Equipment in General Industry:

 Oregon OSHA is also amending the general industry PPE rule 437-002-0134, to include ANSI Z89.1-2009, American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection, as another option of compliance, as published in the June 22, 2012 Federal Register. http://www.osha.gov/FedReg_osha_pdf/FED20120622A.pdf

 Hole Openings (including skylights) in General Industry:

 Oregon OSHA is also changing the hole covering requirements for holes in floors, roofs, and other walking/working surfaces (to include skylights and skylight screens). Currently employers in construction and general industry have different hole cover strength criteria. To eliminate the confusion and inconsistency, Oregon OSHA is changing the general industry requirements to be the same as the construction requirements as referenced in the Federal OSHA proposal for walking working surfaces and personal protective equipment (fall protection) found in the May 24. 2010 Federal Register http://www.osha.gov/FedReg_osha_pdf/FED20100524.pdf .

 Oregon OSHA received no comments concerning this rulemaking during the comment period including three public hearings. These amendments are made in general industry and construction.

(c) When the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required by paragraph (3)(b) of this section, the employer must retrain each such employee. Circumstances where retraining is required include, but are not limited to situations where:

(A) Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete; or

(B) Changes in the types of PPE to be used render previous training obsolete; or

(C) Inadequacies in an affected employee’s knowledge or use of assigned PPE indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.

(4) Payment for protective equipment.

(a) Except as provided by paragraphs (4)(b) through (4)(f) of this section, the protective equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), used to comply with this part, must be provided by the employer at no cost to employees.
