ACTION:

Final rule; technical amendments.

SUMMARY:

OSHA is issuing technical amendments for minor corrections to the Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals and Slings standards.

DATES:

Effective on April 15, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Summary and Explanation

Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals (§?1910.1119)

Appendix A of the Process Safety Management (PSM) standard (§?1910.1119) contains the "List of Highly Hazardous Chemicals, Toxics and Reactives." A typographical error was recently discovered in the Chemical Abstract Service ("CAS") number for the chemical "Methyl Vinyl Ketone." The published version of the standard incorrectly lists the CAS number as "79-84-4;" the correct CAS number is "78-94-4." The error first appears in the proposed rule of the standard (55 FR 29167, July 17, 1990). It should be noted that the incorrect CAS number, "79-84-4," is not a valid CAS number and does not represent a different chemical. The error is that the numerals eight and nine of the CAS number for methyl vinyl ketone were accidentally switched when publishing the proposed rule. That error was repeated in the final rule (57 FR 6407, Feb. 24, 1991).

OSHA is correcting 29 CFR 1910.119 Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals to correct the CAS number for methyl vinyl ketone in Appendix A of the standard.

Slings (§?1910.184)

On June 8, 2011, OSHA updated its standards regulating slings for general industry (§?1910.184); shipyard employment (§§?1915.112, 1915.113, and 1915.118), and construction (§?1926.251). Modifications to these standards included removal of previous load capacity tables (§?1910.184, tables N-184-1, N-184-3 through N-184-22; and G-1 through G-5, G-7, G-8, and G-10) and references to these tables (§?1915.112; §?1915.113; and §?1926.251; tables H-1 and H-3 through H-19). The updated rule now requires employers to use slings with permanently affixed identification markings that depict the maximum load capacity. The final rule also provides similar protection for shackles in §§?1915.113 and 1926.251.

OSHA is correcting 29 CFR 1910.184 Slings to restore two figures, Figure N-184-4 and Figure N-184-5,that were inadvertently removed by amendments published on June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33590; effective July 8, 2011). Figure N-184-4 shows the basic sling configurations with vertical legs. Figure N-184-5 shows the basic sling configurations with angled legs. Both of these figures are referenced in section (b) definitions of the standard and should not have been removed.

II. Exemption From Notice-and-Comment Procedures

OSHA determined that this rulemaking is not subject to the procedures for public notice and comment specified in Section 4 of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553), Section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 655(b)), and 29 CFR 1911.5. This rulemaking only corrects a minor typographical error and the erroneous deletion of illustrative figures and does not affect or change any existing rights or obligations. No stakeholder is likely to object to these corrections. Therefore, the agency finds good cause that public notice and comment are unnecessary within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), 29 U.S.C. 655(b), and 29 CFR 1911.5.

List of Subjects in 29 CFR Part 1910

Process Safety Management of Highly Hazardous Chemicals; Slings.
