Keystone Steel and Wire Company; Grant of a Permanent Variance
Document Number: 2010-25739
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-10-13
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
This notice announces the grant of a permanent variance to Keystone Steel and Wire Company.

These provisions prohibit the use of compressed air to clean floors and other surfaces where lead and arsenic particulates accumulate.

Accordingly, OSHA finds that these alternative conditions protect workers at least as well as the requirements specified by 29 CFR 1910.1025(h)(2)(i) and 29 CFR 1910.1018(k)(2). This permanent variance applies only in Federal OSHA enforcement jurisdictions.
