Updates to the Beryllium Standard for the Construction and Shipyard Industry

Vermont Proposed Rule: 22P008

AGENCY: Department of Labor

CONCISE SUMMARY: VOSHA is amending its existing construction and shipyard standards for occupational exposure to beryllium and beryllium compounds to clarify certain provisions and simplify or improve compliance. These changes are designed to accomplish three goals: to more appropriately tailor the requirements of the construction and shipyards standards to the particular exposures in these industries, in light of partial overlap between the beryllium standards' requirements and other OSHA standards (such as the Hazard Communication Standard); to aid compliance and enforcement across the beryllium standards by avoiding inconsistency, where appropriate, between the shipyards and construction standards and recent revisions to the general industry standard; and to clarify certain requirements with respect to materials containing only trace amounts of beryllium. This final rule does not affect the general industry beryllium standard.
