DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC67 Publication ID: Spring 2016 
Title: Standards Improvement Project IV 
Abstract:

OSHA's Standards Improvement Projects (SIPs) are intended to remove or revise duplicative, unnecessary, and inconsistent safety and health standards. The Agency has published three earlier final standards to remove unnecessary provisions (63 FR 33450, 70 FR 1111, 76 FR 33590), thus reducing costs or paperwork burden on affected employers. The Agency is initiating a fourth rulemaking effort to identify unnecessary or duplicative provisions or paperwork requirements that are focused primarily on its construction standards in 29 CFR 1926, as long as they do not diminish employee protections.
