DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC80 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: ●Revocation of Periodic Records 
Abstract: As part of the Department of Labor's burden hour and cost reduction initiatives, OSHA will examine revoking requirements for employers to prepare and maintain periodic records certifying that the employer performed the required tests and inspections on machinery. The purpose of revoking these records is to minimize paperwork burdens imposed on employers. Recently, OSHA revoked requirements that employers develop and retain training records for a number of standards when the revocation did not adversely affect worker safety and health. OSHA is examining other periodic records specified in its standards to identify additional paperwork requirements that the Agency could revoke without adversely affecting worker safety and health.
