REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS AND TIERING STATEMENT

 

Contact person: Kristi Redmon

      (1) Provide a brief summary of:

      (a) What this administrative regulation does: This administrative regulation, in Section 1, defines terms not found in the federal standard. Section 2 requires the construction industry to comply with the requirements of 29 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) 1926.500 through 1926.501(b)(12)and 1926.501(b)(14) through 1926.503, revised July 1, 2013, thus updating the C.F.R. and related Appendices. Section 2 also amends 1926.500 as published in the April 11, 2014 Federal Register, Volume 79, Number 70. Section 3 of the regulation sets forth requirements related to the residential construction industry and fall protection requirements. The Kentucky OSH Standards Board adopted the amendments related to the July 1, 2013 Federal Register on May 6, 2014. As a result of the adoption of the final rule 803 KAR 2:412 must be amended to include the adopted changes. The April 11, 2014 final rule is amending the scope of 1926.500(a)(2)(vi), Fall Protection, to include employees working from aerial lifts or on poles, towers, or similar structures while engaged in the construction of electric transmission or distribution lines or equipment provided in Subpart V. The final rule is also amending 1926.500(a)(3)(iii), by replacing references to personal climbing equipment, lineman’s body belts, safety straps, and lanyards, with "fall arrest and work-positioning equipment" provided in Subpart V of this part. Finally, this amendment updates this administrative regulation to meet KRS Chapter 13A considerations.

      (b) The necessity of the amendment to this administrative regulation: The Kentucky OSH Program is mandated by 29 C.F.R. Parts 1952 and 1953 to be at least as effective as OSHA. 29 C.F.R. 1953.5 requires state implementation of the new federal standard, or a more stringent amendment, within six (6) months of the April 11, 2014 final rule. Kentucky does not have an effective alternative to the final rule. Accordingly, in order to maintain its state program as effective as the federal program, Kentucky must incorporate the federal requirements by October 11, 2014. The amendments to 803 KAR 2:412, were all adopted by the Kentucky OSH Standards Board on May 06, 2014.

      (c) How this administrative regulation conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes: This administrative regulation conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes of KRS Chapter 338.051 and 338.061.

      (d) How this administrative regulation currently assists or will assist in the effective administration of the statutes: This administrative regulation will promote worker health and safety throughout Kentucky and keep the state program as effective as the federal program.

      (2) If this is an amendment to an existing administrative regulation, provide a brief summary of:

      (a) How the amendment will change this existing administrative regulation: Section 2 requires the construction industry to comply with the requirements of 29 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) 1926.500 through 1926.501(b)(12)and 1926.501(b)(14) through 1926.503,revised July 1, 2010, thus updating the C.F.R.. Section 2 also amends 1926.500 as published in the April 11, 2014 Federal Register, Volume 79, Number 70. The amendments related to the April Federal Register will change the requirements for employees using fall protection while engaged in the construction of electric transmission and distribution lines and equipment in Subpart V. It will also change the requirements for employees using fall arrest and work-positioning equipment that is provided in Subpart V. This amendment also updates the administrative regulation to meet KRS Chapter 13A considerations.

      (b) The necessity of the amendment to this administrative regulation: The Kentucky OSH Program is mandated by 29 C.F.R. Parts 1952 and 1953 to be at least as effective as OSHA. 29 C.F.R. 1953.5 requires state implementation of the new federal standard, or a more stringent amendment, within six (6) months of the April 11, 2014 final rule. Kentucky does not have an effective alternative to the final rule. Accordingly, in order to maintain its state program as effective as the federal program, Kentucky must incorporate the federal requirements by October 11, 2014. The amendments to 803 KAR 2: 412, were all adopted by the Kentucky OSH Standards Board on May 06, 2014.

      (c) How the amendment conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes: This amendment conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes of KRS Chapter 338.051 and 338.061.

      (d) How the amendment will assist in the effective administration of the statutes: This amendment maintains consistency with the federal requirements, providing all a clear understanding of the requirements. This amendment promotes worker health and safety throughout Kentucky and keeps the state program as effective as the federal program.

      (a) List the actions that each of the regulated entities identified in question (3) will have to take to comply with this administrative regulation or amendment: Revising the requirements for fall protection while engaged in the construction of electric transmission or distribution lines or equipment will provide a more effective means of protecting employees from falls than existing OSHA standards.

      (b) In complying with this administrative regulation or amendment, how much will it cost each of the entities identified in question (3): The April 11, 2014 final rule will have a total annualized cost of $49 million. Compliance costs specific to this state was not available.
