Federal Identical General Industry Standards [16 VAC 25 ‑ 90]
This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
Action:
Corrections to Vehicle-Mounted Elevating and Rotating Work Platforms, §1910.67, and Logging Operations, §1910.266
 
General Information
Action Summary Federal OSHA has corrected non-substantive typographical errors in its standards for Vehicle-Mounted Elevating and Rotating Work Platforms, §1910.67, and Logging Operations, §1910.266. The first typographical error corrected was in the title of a national consensus standards organization referenced in §1910.67(c)(5), which states that all welding done on vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating work platforms must conform to Automotive Welding Society Standards incorporated by reference in §1910.6. However, as §1910.6(i) specifies, the correct title of the organization is the American Welding Society Standards. In §1910.67(c)(5), federal OSHA replaced “Automotive” with “American”. The second typographical error was in a reference in the Logging Operations Standard to another federal OSHA standard. Specifically, §1910.266(d)(1)(iv), which was adopted by the Safety and Health Codes Board on December 19, 1994. This subparagraph, which establishes personal-protective-equipment requirements when logging employees operate chain saws, states that the requirement does not apply to employees who operate chain saws from a vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating work platform that meets the requirements of §1910.68. However, §1910.67, not §1910.68 (Manlifts), addresses vehicle-mounted elevating and rotating work platforms. Therefore, in §1910.266(d)(1)(iv), federal OSHA inserted “§1910.67” and removed “§1910.68”.
