DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB76 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Occupational Exposure to Beryllium 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed to revoke the ancillary provisions for the construction and the shipyard sectors that OSHA adopted on January 9, 2017 (82 FR 2470), but retain the new lower permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 0.2 µg/m3 and the short term exposure limit (STEL) of 2.0 µg/m3 for each sector. OSHA will not enforce the January 9, 2017, shipyard and construction standards without further notice while this new rulemaking is underway.  With respect to the general industry standard published on January 9, 2017, OSHA has been negotiating with litigants and may propose to clarify revisions to that rule.
