EFFECT: Removes the bill's repeal of the restriction on regulating work-related musculoskeletal disorders and ergonomics for nonhome offices and the provisions limiting L&I from adopting more than one industry or occupation standard per year until 1-1-2027 and instead provides that L&I may not adopt similar rules that mandate use of a risk assessment tool for manual material handling tasks.
