Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: The purpose of this proposal is to add an additional public hearing, extending the public comment period from January 30, 2014, to March 12, 2014, due to an error regarding information posted on our web site regarding the public hearing that occurred on January 23, 2014.
Reasons Supporting Proposal: Stakeholders have complained that our rules on the web are confusing and difficult to access in real time. When the agency updated its web site, template DOSH rules in HTML were broken and DOSH began forwarding rule users to the office of the code reviser web site, which caused more confusion. This rule package will resolve stakeholder issues that have caused confusion for rule users by bringing one clear and consistent format to all of our rules.
