OSHA has issued a direct final rule and a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise requirements for head protection in its general industry, construction, shipyard employment, longshoring, and marine terminals standards (June 22 Federal Register).

The rulemaking covers testing of head protection for all industries to ensure consistency among the agency’s standards. The updates are part of OSHA’s rules for personal protective equipment (PPE).

The rulemaking covers testing of head protection for all industries to ensure consistency among the agency’s standards.

OSHA’s rulemaking actions will update references in its standards to recognize the 2009 edition of the American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection, and is deleting the 1986 edition of that national consensus standard because it is out of date.

The direct final rule will become effective on September 20, 2012, unless OSHA receives a significant adverse comment by July 23, 2012. If the agency receives significant adverse comments, the accompanying notice of proposed rulemaking will allow the agency to continue the notice-and-comment component of the rulemaking by withdrawing the direct final rule. Individuals may submit comments electronically at the Federal eRulemaking Portal.

Submissions may also be sent via facsimile or mail. See the Federal Register notice for details.

Comments must be submitted by July 23, 2012.
