Petitioners request to amend Title 8, Construction Safety Orders (CSO), Section 1630 as it pertains to construction personnel hoists (CPH), to expedite amendments proposed by the Division of Occupational Safety and Health in their April 3, 2019, Request for New, or Change in Existing, Safety Order (Form 9). Additionally, the Petition asks to address additional CPH issues: the definition of when alternative access is permissible in lieu of a CPH; and a requirement in the permit application for employers to provide empirical data to substantiate the infeasibility of CPH use.
