Standards Improvement Project pre-rule review complete
Washington – The Office of Management and Budget has completed its review of a proposed OSHA rule to streamline construction regulations by removing or revising duplicative and inconsistent standards.
Currently a pre-rule, Standards Improvement Project IV is the fourth such rule put forth by OSHA as part of an effort to reduce employer costs or paperwork burdens. This rulemaking is the first to focus solely on construction industry standards, whereas previous rulemakings were geared toward general industry.
OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs received the pre-rule for review Aug. 23 and completed its review Nov. 21.
