PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
LABOR AND INDUSTRIES
[Filed January 24, 2019, 1:34 p.m.]
The department of labor and industries (L&I) is withdrawing the preproposal statement of inquiry for rule making to clarify the department's rules regarding "fall protection" under chapter 296-155 WAC, Part C-1, WSR 16-07-121, that was filed on March 22, 2016. This preproposal statement of inquiry for rule making also included possible rule making on chapter 296-155 WAC, Part O.
Since March 2016, L&I has held numerous stakeholder meetings across the state. Comments and suggestions made by stakeholders have provided opportunity to explore all of our current fall protection rules, thus modifying the original intent of this specific rule-making effort. L&I will file another preproposal statement of inquiry, CR-101, at a later date.
If you have any questions, please contact Chris Miller, division of occupational safety and health, at 360-902-5516.
