March 25, 2022
The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (NV OSHA) has announced that it will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. to adopt its heat illness regulation. This regulation, first proposed in September 2021, has been revised several times in response to stakeholder comments and suggestions. The hearing to adopt the final text will be held via Webex only. Instructions on how to join the meeting and the current text of the regulation can be found here.
NV OSHA also announced that a public hearing will be held on March 30, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. on a proposed regulation regarding “OSHA penalty reduction factors and other issues.” This regulation, dated February 22, 2022, seeks to “adopt new provisions on the reduction of penalties assessed against employers for OSHA violations,” and “adopt a new standard entitled the Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment.” It also seeks to change investigation procedures and timeframes and address a variety of other matters specific to certain industries. The public and all interested parties are invited to attend the hearing and/or submit written comments on the proposed regulation by no later than April 6, 2022.
We encourage employers to review this new proposed regulation.
