Proposed 2017 Amendments to Logging Chapter 296-54

Proposed Amendments to Chapter 296-54 WAC Safety Standards - Logging Operations



Chapter 296-54 WAC Safety Standards - Logging Operations

CR-102 Filing Date: March 21, 2017
Proposed Adoption Date: August 1, 2017

In response to multiple petitions received, the Department of Labor and Industries (L&I), Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), initiated rulemaking by filing a pre-proposal statement of inquiry (CR-101) regarding the logging requirements currently located in Chapter 296-54 WAC, Logging Operations. We intend to work with stakeholders to develop proposed rule language.

L&I received several petitions for rulemaking from the Washington Contract Loggers Association (WCLA) in 2010. The department started rulemaking in response to the petitions. In 2012, the department put their rulemaking effort on hold to launch the Logger Safety Initiative (LSI). The WCLA petitioned the department in 2014 to reopen rulemaking following the successful launch of the LSI program.
