L&I produces table of contents/indexes to worker safety and health regulations

TUMWATER - The Department of Labor & Industries has produced a table of contents and indexes to assist employers and workers navigate the standards and regulations that protect Washington's 2.3 million workers from workplace injury and illness.

The effort included an index for each of three major regulations. They are:

  • The general safety and health standard that applies to all Washington workplaces - Chapter 296-24 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC)
  • The general occupational health standard - Chapter 296-62 WAC
  • The safety standard for the construction industry - Chapter 296-155 WAC

These alphabetical listings will help employers and workers locate information contained in approximately 3,000 pages of safety and health rules.

In addition, L&I has produced a table of contents for Chapter 296-24, listing the contents of each chapter of the standard that applies to all Washington workplaces.

Printed copies of the table of contents and the indexes will be distributed to employers who are listed on the agency's notification directories. In addition, the information will be posted to L&I's Internet website at (www.lni.wa.gov/wisha/innovations) and can be downloaded from there.

The completion of the table of contents and indexes marks the first phase of the agency's legislatively approved Innovations in Regulatory Improvement project. This multi-year project will completely rewrite and reorganize the agency's worker safety and health regulations.

Questions may be directed to George Huffman, Innovations project manager, at 360/902-5525.
