Clarification of Employer Duty To Provide Personal Protective Equipment and Train Each Employee
Document Number: E8-29122
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-12
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
In this rulemaking, OSHA is amending its standards to add language clarifying that the personal protective equipment (PPE) and training requirements impose a compliance duty to each and every employee covered by the standards and that noncompliance may expose the employer to liability on a per-employee basis. The amendments consist of new paragraphs added to the introductory sections of the listed Parts and changes to the language of some existing respirator and training requirements. This action, which is in accord with OSHA's longstanding position, is being taken in response to recent decisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission indicating that differences in wording among the various PPE and training provisions in OSHA safety and health standards affect the Agency's ability to treat an employer's failure to provide PPE or training to each covered employee as a separate violation. The amendments add no new compliance obligations. Employers are not required to provide any new type of PPE or training, to provide PPE or training to any employee not already covered by the existing requirements, or to provide PPE or training in a different manner than that already required. The amendments simply clarify that the standards apply to each employee.

Announcement of Public Briefings on Using the New H-2A Temporary Agricultural Labor Certification Program
Document Number: E8-28847
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-12-05
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor, Employment Standards Administration
The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) in the Department of Labor's Employment & Training Administration (ETA) has been re-engineering several of its programs, including the H-2A foreign agricultural worker labor certification program. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Employment Standards Administration (ESA) has been amending contractual obligations applicable to employers of workers subject to Section 218 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The Department published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to redesign the H-2A agricultural labor certification program on February 13, 2008. The Department is currently reviewing public comments on this proposed rule and intends to publish final regulations before the end of the calendar year. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published an NPRM to amend its H-2A regulations and intends to publish a final rule before the end of the calendar year as well. Pursuant to the Department of Labor final rule, changes to information collection and regulatory requirements will affect the application forms. The H-2A program will no longer use the Form ETA 750 (OMB control number 1205-0015). Instead the program will utilize the new Form ETA 9142 (OMB control number 1205-0466). The new regulations also federalize the prevailing wage determination process in the H-2A program. ETA and ESA are issuing this notice to announce that they will offer at least two public briefings to educate stakeholders, program users, and other interested members of the public on using the re- engineered program and new form. Representatives from DHS will also be joining the Department of Labor at the briefing sessions. As currently planned, the two briefings will take place in late 2008 in Atlanta and Denver. This notice provides the public with locations, dates, and registration information regarding the briefings. However, these briefings are subject to change and/or cancellation without further notice in the Federal Register. In the event of a change participants who have registered will be notified.
