Personal Protective Equipment for Shipyard Employment: Final Rule [USA]
This final rule became effective (except for some minor provisions) on 22 Aug. 1996. It updates, reorganizes and simplifies the standards related to the wearing of personal protective equipment (PPE) during shipyard employment. Shipbuilding, ship repair and shipbreaking are all included within its scope. Where appropriate, the final rule deletes existing specification-oriented provisions that limit employer innovation and incorporates performance-oriented language.
