LABOR AND INDUSTRIES
Purpose: This rule making is part of our four-year plan to rewrite for clarity all of our general occupational safety and health rules. Machine guarding requirements located in chapters 296-24, 296-78, and 296-302 WAC were reviewed to identify unnecessary design requirements, outdated terminology, incorporate necessary policies and requirements, rewriting and reorganizing for clarity and consolidate into one rule, chapter 296-806 WAC. Also, several references were updated as a result of this being a new chapter. See Reviser's Note below.
