DEFINITIONS/RIGHTS OF TRANSPORTATION SAFETY

 

735-120-0000

Rights of Transportation Safety

(1) The purpose of this Safety Code is to prescribe minimum standards for the safe transportation of workmen to and from their place of employment as set forth in ORS 820.010 to 820.070.

(2) All standards in this Code are minimum. They can be made more stringent if necessary to protect the life and safety of persons.

(3) All owners of motor vehicles used to transport workmen, or their duly appointed agents, and drivers of such vehicles shall abide by all safety orders issued to them by the Transportation Safety Division of the Department of Transportation (Transportation Safety), the Department of Consumer and Business Services, or by their duly authorized representatives.

(4) In exceptional cases where the rigid application or compliance with a standard can only be accomplished to the detriment and serious disadvantage of an operation, exception to the standard will be considered upon written application to Transportation Safety. After thorough investigation, an exception may be granted or another rule applied or devised.

(5) Any person or party aggrieved by an order issued under the provisions of this Code may apply to Transportation Safety for a rehearing. Such application shall be made in accordance with the provisions of ORS 183.480, and shall set forth in full detail the grounds upon which the applicant considers the order unjust.

(6) It is recognized that a definite, positive Safety Code cannot anticipate all contingencies. Transportation Safety, after due notice and opportunity to be heard, may require additional standards to insure adequate safety and upon its own motion, or upon application of any owner, or his duly appointed agent, may modify any provision of this Code.

(7) The right of inspection and examination of worker transportation vehicles at any reasonable time is reserved by Transportation Safety or its duly appointed representative.

(8) Terms used in this Code other than those specifically defined shall be interpreted in the most commonly accepted sense.

(9) Roadway is defined as any public street or roadway when referred to in this Code.
