Beyond the Scope? "Public Health Issue" regulated by DOLI?????

Federal court ruled against OSHA in that they do NOT have the authority to regulate a "public health" issue. It would appear the same rationale is applied here and under what statute gives DOLI the authority to regulate a public health issue and mandate workplace safety? The initial regulation should be challenged, how did DOLI even have the authority to create this "regulation" at the onset;  and therefore, repeal without the 30-day waiting period or expedite the waiting period. How can we not expedite this and/or challenge the legality of the regulation itself?
