Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, Mine Safety and Health Administration, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs
The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) is publishing this final rule to adjust for inflation the civil monetary penalties assessed or enforced by the Department, pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (Inflation Adjustment Act). The Inflation Adjustment Act requires the Department to annually adjust its civil money penalty levels for inflation no later than January 15 of each year. The Inflation Adjustment Act provides that agencies shall adjust civil monetary penalties notwithstanding Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). Additionally, the Inflation Adjustment Act provides a cost- of-living formula for adjustment of the civil penalties. Accordingly, this final rule sets forth the Department's 2020 annual adjustments for inflation to its civil monetary penalties.

Document Number: 2019-27112
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-12-17
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
This document provides notice of the declination of coverage over the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers onboard aircraft in operation by all twenty-two (22) OSHA-approved State Plans which cover the private sector. On March 26, 2014, OSHA began applying three safety and health standards to the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers on aircraft in operation. Section 18 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 667 (OSH Act) grants the OSHA-approved State Plans the authority to regulate the working conditions of these employees to the extent consistent with the Federal Aviation Act. Subsequently, OSHA required the State Plans to either elect to amend their State Plans to cover aircraft cabin crewmembers on aircraft in operation, or to decline to exercise such authority, in which case coverage would remain a Federal OSHA responsibility. All affected State Plans declined. OSHA is hereby amending the State Plans' coverage in all of the twenty-two (22) OSHA- approved State Plans covering the private sector to reflect the declination of State Plan coverage, and the continuation of Federal OSHA enforcement authority over the working conditions of aircraft cabin crewmembers while they are onboard aircraft in operation, and notifying affected employers and employees of this action.

Online Delivery of OSHA's Outreach Training Program 10- and 30-Hour Courses
Document Number: 2019-21943
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-10-08
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA requests information, comments, and documents that would assist the agency in determining whether to adopt a new online delivery model for OSHA's Outreach Training Program. The OSHA Outreach Training Program is a hazard awareness training program that educates participants on the recognition, abatement, and prevention of job- related hazards in the construction, general, and maritime industries, and at disaster sites. The potential new model would be limited to OSHA's 10- and 30-hour Outreach courses for the construction, general, and maritime industries. The new model would not include the disaster site worker training program. OSHA plans to use the information collected from this request to determine whether the new model would address issues associated with the existing model. If the new model were implemented, the agency would develop policies and procedures for the online Outreach Training Program courses to ensure that online providers meet OSHA's expectations for program quality and consistency.
Occupational Exposure to Beryllium and Beryllium Compounds in Construction and Shipyard Sectors
Document Number: 2019-21038
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-10-08
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is proposing to revise the standards for occupational exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds in the construction and shipyards industries. These proposed changes are designed to accomplish three goals: To more appropriately tailor the requirements of the construction and shipyards standards to the particular exposures in these industries in light of partial overlap between the beryllium standards' requirements and other OSHA standards; to aid compliance and enforcement across the beryllium standards by avoiding inconsistency, where appropriate, between the shipyards and construction standards and proposed revisions to the general industry standard; and to clarify certain requirements with respect to materials containing only trace amounts of beryllium. This proposal would lead to total annualized cost savings of $2.5 million at a 3 percent discount rate over 10 years; at a discount rate of 7 percent over 10 years, the annualized cost savings would be $2.5 million. OSHA has preliminarily determined that these proposed changes would maintain safety and health protections for workers, while facilitating compliance with the standards and yielding some cost savings. This proposal does not affect the general industry beryllium standard.

Occupational Exposure to Beryllium and Beryllium Compounds in Construction and Shipyard Sectors
Document Number: 2019-21037
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-30
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is finalizing the proposed rule on occupational exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds in construction and shipyards by delaying the compliance deadlines for nearly all provisions of the standards to September 30, 2020. The one exception to the September 30, 2020 compliance deadline is for the permissible exposure limit (PEL) and the short-term exposure limit (STEL), which OSHA has been enforcing since May 11, 2018. This rule confirms that the exposure limits remain in effect. OSHA is not adopting the portion of the proposed rule that would have revised OSHA's existing beryllium standards for construction and shipyards to revoke the ancillary provisions. OSHA finds that other OSHA standards do not duplicate the requirements of the ancillary provisions in the beryllium standards for construction and shipyards in their entirety. Thus revoking all of the ancillary provisions and leaving only the PEL and STEL would be inconsistent with OSHA's statutory mandate to protect workers from the demonstrated significant risks of material impairment of health resulting from exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds. OSHA will publish a new proposal for the construction and shipyards beryllium standards, to seek comment on different changes OSHA is considering.
Additional Ambient Aerosol CNC Quantitative Fit Testing Protocols: Respiratory Protection Standard
Document Number: 2019-20686
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-26
Agency: Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA is approving two additional quantitative fit testing protocols for inclusion in appendix A of the Respiratory Protection Standard. These protocols are: The modified ambient aerosol condensation nuclei counter (CNC) quantitative fit testing protocol for full-facepiece and half-mask elastomeric respirators and the modified ambient aerosol CNC quantitative fit testing protocol for filtering facepiece respirators. The protocols apply to employers in general industry, shipyard employment, and the construction industry. Both protocols are abbreviated variations of the original OSHA-approved ambient aerosol CNC quantitative fit testing protocol (often referred to as the PortaCount[supreg] protocol), but differ from the test by the exercise sets, exercise duration, and sampling sequence. These protocols will serve as alternatives to the four existing quantitative fit testing protocols already listed in appendix A of the Respiratory Protection Standard and will maintain safety and health protections for workers while providing additional flexibility and reducing compliance burdens.
