(1) These rules and regulations are adopted pursuant to and in accordance with chapter 34.05 RCW. The purpose is to provide standards and procedures necessary to ensure the implementation of a comprehensive work program. (See RCW 72.09.015(32).) The headings and captions for the above classes are used for convenience only and do not constitute a part hereof. The use of the term "class" to identify a work program does not restrict the department to a singular description of a work program within that class or the use of other work programs authorized by separate statute.
(2) The secretary may adopt policies providing further guidance for establishing, among other things, worker participation eligibility and security requirements for each class of work program. The secretary may pilot temporary changes to correctional industries' Class IV and V work crew programs for the preservation of public health, safety or general welfare and in response to other community service needs that also promote public health, safety and general welfare. The benefits of such changes will be assessed through a limited number of work crew agreements that may not be subject to all of the current provisions of this chapter.
