ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This is a notice of an addendum to the interagency Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The MOU establishes specific interagency procedures for the transfer of occupational safety and health coverage for privatized facilities, properties, and operations from DOE to OSHA and state agencies acting under state plans approved by OSHA. DATES: The expansion of the scope of recognition becomes effective on September 11, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Information regarding this notice is available from the following sources: Press inquiries: Contact Mr. Frank Meilinger, Director, OSHA Office of Communications, U.S. Department of Labor, telephone: (202) 693–1999; email: meilinger.francis2@dol.gov. General and technical information: Contact Mr. Kevin Robinson, Director, OSHA Office of Technical Programs and Coordination Activities, Directorate of Technical Support and Emergency Management, U.S. Department of Labor, telephone: (202) 693–2110 or email: robinson.kevin@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background DOE and OSHA entered into a MOU on August 10, 1992, delineating regulatory authority over the occupational safety and health of contractor employees at DOE government-owned or leased, contractor-operated (GOCO) facilities. In general, the MOU recognizes that DOE exercises statutory authority under section 161(f) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, (42 U.S.C. 2201(f)), relating to the occupational safety and health of private-sector employees at these facilities. Section 4(b)(1) of the Occupational Safety Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 653(b)(1), exempts from OSHA PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 authority working conditions with respect to which other federal agencies have exercised statutory authority to prescribe or enforce standards or regulations affecting occupational safety and health. The 1992 MOU acknowledges DOE’s extensive program for the regulation of contractor health and safety, which requires contractor compliance with all OSHA standards as well as additional requirements prescribed by DOE, and concludes with an agreement by the agencies that the provisions of the OSH Act will not apply to GOCO sites for which DOE has exercised authority to regulate occupational safety and health under the Atomic Energy Act. The 1992 MOU has expired. In light of DOE’s policy emphasis on privatization activities, OSHA and DOE entered into a second MOU on July 25, 2000, that establishes interagency procedures to address regulatory authority for occupational safety and health at specified privatized facilities and operations on sites formerly controlled by DOE. The July 25, 2000, MOU covers facilities and operations on lands no longer controlled by DOE, which are not conducting activities for or on behalf of DOE and where there is no likelihood that any employee exposure to radiation from DOE sources would be 25 millirems per year (mrem/ yr) or more. II. Notice of Transfer In an email dated February 2, 2018, DOE requested that OSHA or, as appropriate, the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) accept occupational safety and health regulatory authority over employees at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, six parcels of land pursuant to the MOU on Safety and Health Enforcement at Privatized Facilities and Operations dated July 25, 2000. Other facilities and properties at the East Tennessee Technology Park were transferred to TOSHA jurisdiction under this MOU by Federal Register notices 74 FR 120 (January 2, 2009), 74 FR 39977 (August 10, 2009), 76 FR 80408 (December 23, 2011) and 79 FR 29456 (May 22, 2014). The six parcels of land, which are located at the East Tennessee Technology Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and were transferred by deed to the Community Reuse Organization of East Tennessee (CROET) are described as follows: • Land Parcel ED–11 Consists of five tracts of land separated by roadways: ED–11A (11.67 acres), ED–11B (2.25 acres), ED–11C (0.49 acres), ED–11D E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1
