Original Notice.
Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 17-09-064.
Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Beryllium, chapter 296-850 WAC is a new rule the department is proposing to be at-least-as-effective-as the beryllium rule the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently adopted. Additionally, air contaminant tables in chapter 296-841 WAC, Airborne contaminants and chapter 296-307 WAC, Safety standards for agriculture, are included in this proposed rule making to update the permissible exposure limits (PEL) for beryllium to be the same as OSHA's new PEL requirements. The PEL tables in chapter 296-307 WAC are identical to the PEL tables in chapter 296-841 WAC.
Hearing Location(s): On June 12, 2018, at 9:00 a.m., at the Department of Labor and Industries, 12806 Gateway Drive South, Tukwila, WA 98168; and on June 13, 2018, at 9:00 a.m., at the Department of Labor and Industries, 4310 West 24th Avenue, Kennewick, WA 99338.
Date of Intended Adoption: August 21, 2018.
Submit Written Comments to: Gail Hughes, Administrative Regulations Analyst, Department of Labor and Industries, Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), P.O. Box 44620, Olympia, WA 98504-4620, email gail.hughes@lni.wa.gov, fax 360-902-5619, by June 19, 2018.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The department is proposing to add chapter 296-850 WAC, Beryllium, as a new chapter to Title 296 WAC, Department of labor and industries. This proposal responds to OSHA's final rule on beryllium in General Industry C.F.R. 1910.1024, Construction C.F.R. 1926.1124 and Maritime C.F.R. 1915.1024. This rule will limit worker exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds (as Be), which can cause the debilitating lung disease known as chronic beryllium disease (CBD) and lung cancer. This rule mirrors OSHA's final rule, with minor differences in the definitions, medical removal, and medical surveillance sections that allow for implementation of the rule to be consistent with existing requirements in Title 51 RCW. The PEL tables in WAC 296-307-62625 and 296-841-20025 are also being updated to reflect OSHA's reduced beryllium PELs.
Amended Sections:
WAC 296-841-20025 Permissible exposure limits (PELs) and 296-307-62625 Permissible exposure limits of air contaminants.
Update PEL table to reflect OSHA's new PEL requirements.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: By law, labor and industries', DOSH is required to update our rules to be at-least-as-effective-as federal OSHA. The department currently does not have rules governing beryllium, therefore with the adoption by OSHA of beryllium rules to protect workers the department is required to adopt rules for beryllium to be at-least-as-effective-as OSHA.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 49.17.010, 49.17.040, 49.17.050, 49.17.060.
Statute Being Implemented: Chapter 49.17 RCW.
Rule is necessary because of federal law, 29 C.F.R. 1910.1024, 1926.1124 and 1915.1024.
Name of Proponent: Department of labor and industries, governmental.
Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Chris Miller, Tumwater, Washington, 360-902-5516; Implementation and Enforcement: Anne Soiza, Tumwater, Washington, 360-902-5090.
A school district fiscal impact statement is not required under RCW 28A.305.135.
A cost-benefit analysis is required under RCW 34.05.328. A preliminary cost-benefit analysis may be obtained by contacting Gail Hughes, Department of Labor and Industries, P.O. Box 44620, Olympia, WA 98504-4620, phone 360-902-6772, fax 360-902-5519, email gail.hughes@lni.wa.gov.
This rule proposal, or portions of the proposal, is exempt from requirements of the Regulatory Fairness Act because the proposal:
Is exempt under RCW 19.85.061 because this rule making is being adopted solely to conform and/or comply with federal statute or regulations. Citation of the specific federal statute or regulation and description of the consequences to the state if the rule is not adopted: 29 C.F.R. 1910.1024, 1915.1024, and 1926.1124 – Safety rules for beryllium. RCW 49.17.050 requires the department of labor and industries "adopt occupational health and safety standards which are at least as effective as those adopted or recognized by the United State[s] secretary of labor under the authority of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970." DOSH receives federal funding as part of the agreement with OSHA as a "state plan state." Not adopting rules in response to OSHA would jeopardize this funding.
The proposed rule does not impose more-than-minor costs on businesses. Following is a summary of the agency's analysis showing how costs were calculated. The department has identified two proposed requirements that are different from OSHA's new standards or existing Washington laws. (1) This proposal will allow an employee with a single abnormal or borderline BeLPT result to be medically removed and receive related benefits before confirmatory testing is completed, while the OSHA standard requires at least two tests to confirm a positive result before an employee can receive this type of benefit. The costs of providing this benefit would be the same under both the proposed rule and OSHA standard if an employee with an initial abnormal or borderline result is subsequently confirmed positive through follow-up testing. Only when the first test result turns out to be false positive, meaning an employee with an initial other than normal test result is not subsequently confirmed positive through follow-up testing would the costs be higher under the proposed rule. (2) For the employee with one abnormal or borderline BeLPT result, both OSHA and this proposed rule require the employer offer follow-up testing. However, the proposed rule also allows these workers and those with two borderline BeLPT results to request an evaluation at a CBD diagnostic center that is mutually agreed upon by the employer and the employee, or at a CBD diagnostic center that is also a department-recognized CRI research and clinical assessment center if requested by the employee.
The department has estimated the average cost per business of these two amendments for all affected businesses, and has compared it to the minor cost threshold based on one percent of the annual average payroll in an affected industry. The department concludes that this average cost is much lower than the minor cost threshold for businesses in any affected industry (a detailed analysis on how this determination is derived is available upon request). Therefore, a small business economic impact statement is not required for this rule making pursuant to RCW 19.85.030(1).

AMENDATORY SECTION (Amending WSR 18-07-098, filed 3/20/18, effective 4/23/18)
WAC 296-307-62625 Permissible exposure limits of air contaminants.
IMPORTANT:
The following information applies to Table 3, Permissible Exposure Limits for Air Contaminants.
• Exposure needs to be determined from personal air samples taken in the breathing zone or from monitoring representative of the employee's breathing zone.
• Ppm refers to parts of vapor or gas per million parts of air by volume, at 25 degrees C and 760 mm Hg pressure.
• Mg/m3 refers to milligrams of substance per cubic meter of air.
• For a metal that is measured as the metal itself, only the CAS number for the metal is given. The CAS numbers for individual compounds of the metal are not provided. For more information about CAS registry numbers see the web site: http://www.cas.org.
• Time weighted averages (TWA8) represent the maximum allowed average exposure for any 8-hour time period. For work periods longer than 8 hours the TWA8 needs to be determined using the 8 continuous hours with the highest average concentration.
• Short-term exposure limits (STEL) represent maximum allowed average exposure for any fifteen-minute period, unless another time period is noted in Table 3.
• The ceiling represents the maximum allowed exposure for the shortest time period that can feasibly be measured.
• An "X" in the "skin" column indicates the substance can be absorbed through the skin, either by airborne or direct contact.
• Requirements for the use of gloves, coveralls, goggles, and other personal protective equipment can be found in WAC 296-307-100.
• The respirable fraction of particulate is measured by sampling with a size-selector having the following characteristics:
