Document Number: 2014-04982
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-03-07
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
In this notice, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (``OSHA'' or the ``Agency'') revokes an experimental variance and interim order granted by OSHA in 1976 and 1978, respectively, to Interlake Stamping Corp., (``Interlake'' or the ``applicant'') from several provisions of the OSHA standard that regulates mechanical power presses at 29 CFR 1910.217. In April 2011, Interlake submitted an application request for a permanent variance from these provisions, but later withdrew the application, stating that it would be too costly to comply with the conditions of the variance. Therefore, OSHA is revoking Interlake's experimental variance and the interim order.
