All updates for this rule:

Chapter 296-54 WAC (Safety Standards - Logging Operations)

The purpose of this rulemaking is to update Chapter 296-54 WAC, Safety Standards - Logging Operations. The department received petitions for rulemaking regarding the logging standard in 2010. In 2012, the department put rulemaking efforts on hold to launch the Logger Safety Initiative (LSI). The department was petitioned again in 2014 to reopen rulemaking efforts following the successful launch of the LSI program. References, formatting and minor housekeeping changes are also proposed throughout the chapter.616.
