SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 667 (OSH Act), provides that states that wish to assume responsibility for developing and enforcing their own occupational safety and health standards may do so by submitting and obtaining federal approval of a State Plan. State Plan approval occurs in stages that include initial approval under Section 18(c) of the Act and, ultimately, final approval under Section 18(e). The Tennessee State Plan was initially approved under Section 18(c) of the OSH Act and 29 CFR part 1902 on July 5, 1973. The Tennessee State Plan is administered by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Division of Occupational Safety and Health (TOSHA). On July 22, 1985, OSHA announced the final approval of the Tennessee State Plan pursuant to Section 18(e) and amended Subpart P of 29 CFR part 1952 to reflect the Assistant Secretary’s decision (50 FR 29659–01). As a result, OSHA relinquished its concurrent standards and enforcement authority with regard to occupational safety and health issues covered by the Tennessee State Plan. OSHA retained its authority over safety and health in private sector maritime employment; federal government employers and workers; the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), including USPS employees and contract employees at contractor-operated facilities engaged in USPS mail operations; railroad employment; employment at Tennessee Valley Authority facilities; and on military bases.

Marine Construction

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document gives notice of OSHA's approval of a change to 
the state of Tennessee's occupational safety and health State Plan to 
include marine construction in its State Plan. Marine construction was 
previously exempted from the State Plan by the Tennessee Occupational 
Safety and Health Act of 1972. Therefore, OSHA amends the Tennessee 
State Plan's coverage to reflect this change in the level of federal 
enforcement.

DATES: Effective Date: September 29, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and 
Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 667 (OSH Act), provides that states that 
wish to assume responsibility for developing and enforcing their own 
occupational safety and health standards may do so by submitting and 
obtaining federal approval of a State Plan. State Plan approval occurs 
in stages that include initial approval under Section 18(c) of the Act 
and, ultimately, final approval under Section 18(e).
    The Tennessee State Plan was initially approved under Section 18(c) 
of the OSH Act and 29 CFR part 1902 on July 5, 1973. The Tennessee 
State Plan is administered by the Tennessee Department of Labor and 
Workforce Development, Division of Occupational Safety and Health 
(TOSHA). On July 22, 1985, OSHA announced the final approval of the

enforcement authority with regard to occupational safety and health 
issues covered by the Tennessee State Plan.
    OSHA retained its authority over safety and health in private

the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), including USPS employees and contract 
employees at contractor-operated facilities engaged in USPS mail

Tennessee subsequently removed this prohibition from the statute (2015

given of the change in State Plan authority over marine construction, 
and coverage is transferred to the Tennessee State Plan.
