REGULATION NEWS & INFORMATION
Construction Confined Space Final Rule on OSHA's 2013 Agenda
significant regulatory actions are planned for this fiscal year,
according to the semiannual regulatory agenda published Jan. 8.
The biggest rulemaking action OSHA plans to accomplish this year is
issuing a final rule on construction confined space safety. The general
industry standard, 29 CFR 1910.146, has never been extended to
construction because construction sites are unique and their hazards
change, but the agency has been working on a construction rule for
about a decade and intends to issue the final rule in July 2013,
according to the semiannual regulatory agenda published Jan. 8.
Another final rule listed in the agenda is expected sooner, in March
2013 -– an updated construction standard on electrical protective
equipment worn during the construction of electric power transmission
and distribution lines, as well as amending the general industry
standard so that requirements for maintenance work on electric power
transmission and distribution installations are the same as for similar
work in construction. In addition, this final rule addresses fall
protection in aerial lifts for work on power generation, transmission,
and distribution installations.
One item on the agenda is listed as long term, with next action
undetermined. It is the proposed rule that would protect workers from
occupational exposures to food flavorings containing diacetyl and
diacetal substitutes. NIOSH is developing a criteria document on such
exposures, and the agenda says OSHA will rely on parts of NIOSH's
document for the health effects analysis and quantitative risk
assessment for its own rulemaking.
If the agenda's dates prove accurate, OSHA will issue notices of
proposed rulemaking in May 2013 for occupational exposure to
crystalline silica and in July 2013 for occupational exposure to
OSHA's Yearly Summary of Injury and Illness
EHS managers nationwide have just three more weeks to complete and post
their organizations' annual OSHA 300-A Summary Forms. Formally known as
the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, this form must be
completed no later than February 1 and posted in “...a conspicuous
place or places where notices to employees are customarily posted...”
(29 CFR 1904.32).
The 300-A form must remain posted until at least April 30, and
employers must ensure the form is not altered, defaced, or covered by
other materials during that time.
300-A Form—What OSHA Requires
At the end of each calendar year, an employer must:
the OSHA 300 Log (the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses) to
verify that the entries are complete and accurate, and correct any
- Create an annual summary of injuries and illnesses recorded on the OSHA 300 log;
- Certify the summary (by having a "company executive" examine it); and
- Post the annual summary.
There is no required procedure to follow or length of time you must
spend reviewing the OSHA 300 Log. OSHA simply states that you must
“...review the entries as extensively as necessary to make sure that
they are complete and correct.” (29 CFR 1904.32)
Required Elements of Your 300-A
To complete the 300-A form, an employer must:
- Total the columns on the OSHA 300 Log (enter "0" if no recordable cases);
- Enter the calendar year covered, the company's name, establishment name, and establishment address;
- Enter the annual, average number of employees covered by the OSHA 300 Log; and
- Enter the total hours worked by all employees covered by the OSHA 300 Log.
If you are using an equivalent form other than the OSHA 300-A (as
allowed by 29 CFR 1904.6(b)(4)), you must include the employee access
and employer penalty statements found on the OSHA 300-A summary form.
