OSHA Announces Lockout/Tagout and Standards Improvement Project Developments


The latest rulemaking represents Phase IV of the SIP.

Many current standards were revised when OSHA announced a final rule in the Federal Register in May 2019. The different revisions involved standards for recordkeeping, general industry, maritime, and construction. This white paper reviews the revisions and discusses the surprise behind a change that OSHA chose not to make.
