OSHRC Docket No. 80-4850

SECRETARY'S NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL OF CITATION

In a decision dated March 15, 1983, Administrative Law Judge David J. Knight affirmed a serious citation issued to respondent for a violation 29 CFR 1910.1029(4)(i), which citation had been issued by the Secretary on July 25, 1980.   Respondent's subsequent petition for discretionary review of the judge's decision regarding this citation item was granted by the Commission on April 28, 1983.

After further review of the record in this case the Secretary has determined that further adjudication of this matter is not warranted. Copies of this notice have been served on respondent and the authorized employee representative.

WHEREFORE, the Secretary hereby withdraws item 4 of the citation issued to respondent on July 25, 1980 alleging a serious violation of 29 CFR 1910.1029(4)(i) and requests that the judge's decision on this item be set aside.

Respectfully submitted,
