Standards Improvement Project-Phase III
Document Number: 2010-15156
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-07-02
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is continuing its efforts to remove or revise outdated, duplicative, unnecessary, and inconsistent requirements in its safety and health standards. This effort builds on the success of Standards Improvement Project (SIP)Phase I published on June 18, 1998, and SIPPhase II published on January 5, 2005. The Agency believes that the proposed revisions will reduce compliance costs, eliminate paperwork burdens, and clarify requirements without diminishing worker protections.
