Asbestos removal and encapsulation.

Chapter 296-65, WAC

All updates for this rule:

DOSH eRules Phase VIII (WAC Chapters: 296-65, 296-301, 296-303, 296-304, 296-803, 296-811, 296-816, 296-818, 296-824, 296-835, 296-841, 296-842, 296-863, 296-900)

When Labor and Industries updated its website, template DOSH rules in HTML were broken and DOSH began forwarding rule users to the Office of the Code Reviser website, causing more confusion among customers. The pre-proposal package will resolve stakeholder issues that have caused confusion for rule users by bringing one clear and consistent format to all of our rules. This pre-proposal will accomplish the following: - No requirements are changing because of this pre-proposal. - Consistent format for all DOSH safety and health rules. - Easy to access rules for smart phone and tablet users. - Bookmarks in the rules allow easy navigation in PDF files. - Bullets and dashes are removed and replaced with numbers and letters for easier referencing. - Enhances rule update efficiency for customers by allowing for faster updates through electronic postings. Rules that are anticipated to be amended in eRules Phase VIII include: Chapter 296-65 WAC Asbestos; Chapter 296-301 WAC Safety Standards for the Textile Industry; Chapter 296-303 WAC Safety Standards for Laundry Machinery and Operations; Chapter 296-304 WAC Safety Standards for Ship Repairing, Shipbuilding and Shipbreaking; Chapter 296-803 WAC Lockout/Tagout (Control of Hazardous Energy); Chapter 296-811 WAC Fire Brigades; Chapter 296-816 WAC Protecting Trade Secrets; Chapter 296-818 WAC Abrasive Blasting; Chapter 296-824 WAC Emergency Response; Chapter 296-835 WAC Dipping and Coating Operations; Chapter 296-841 WAC Airborne Contaminants; Chapter 296-842 WAC Respirators; Chapter 296-863 WAC Forklifts and Other Powered Industrial Trucks; and Chapter 296-900 WAC Administrative Rules.764.
