Proposed rule phase

Proposed Rule Phase

Title: Combustible Dust

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) completed a study of combustible dust hazards in late 2006, which identified 281 combustible dust incidents between 1980 and 2005 that killed 119 workers and injured another 718.

CSB recommended OSHA to pursue a rulemaking on this issue.

On July 31, 2005, OSHA published the Safety and Health Information Bulletin, "Combustible Dust in Industry: Preventing and Mitigating the Effects of Fire and Explosions."

OSHA implemented a Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP) March 11, 2008.

ANPRM October 21, 2009 –

Stakeholder meetings - 2009 and 2010

Webchat for combustible dust - June 28, 2010.

Initiate SBREFA – 4/00/2014.


Proposed rule phase1

Proposed Rule Phase

  • Title: Injury and Illness Prevention Program

    • It involves planning, implementing, evaluating, and improving processes and activities that protect employee safety and health.

    • Build on voluntary Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines), published in 1989, VPP, SHARP, ANSI/AIHA Z10 and Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series 18001.

    • Twelve States have similar rules.

    • Stakeholder Meetings - 06/03/2010

    • Initiate SBREFA 0 - 1/06/2012

    • NPRM - 09/00/2014


Proposed rule phase2

Proposed Rule Phase

Title: Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses

An updated and modernized reporting system would enable a more efficient and timely collection of data and would improve the accuracy and availability of the relevant records and statistics.

This proposal involves modification to 29 CFR part 1904.41 to expand OSHA's legal authority to collect and make available injury and illness information required under part 1904.

Stakeholder Meetings - 05/25/2010

Comment Period End - 06/18/2010

NPRM – 11/8/2013


Proposed rule phase3

Proposed Rule Phase

Title: Occupational Exposure to Crystalline Silica

OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) for general industry is based on a formula proposed by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) in 1968

PEL for construction and shipyards (derived from ACGIH's 1970 Threshold Limit Value) is based on particle counting technology, which is considered obsolete.

Completed SBREFA Report - 12/19/2003

Title: Confined Spaces in Construction

Abstract: In January 1993, OSHA issued a general industry rule to protect employees who enter confined spaces - 1910.146). This standard does not apply to the construction industry because of unique characteristics of construction worksites.
