General Information
Action Summary Federal OSHA proposed a number of actions to amend its standards, including revisions to the Agency’s general industry, maritime, construction, and agricultural standards. The ongoing Standards Improvement Project (SIP) removed or revised individual requirements within rules that were confusing, outdated, duplicative, or inconsistent. Federal OSHA identified several requirements for this phase of the Standards Improvement Project, including rigging, NIOSH records, and training certifications for improvement based on OSHA’s review of its standards, suggestions and comments from the public, or recommendations from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
