FOR THE COMMISSION
Ray H. Darling, Jr.
Dated: MAY 25 1984
RAYMOND J. DONOVAN, SECRETARY OF LABOR,
WACHSBERGER ROOFING & SHEET METAL
OSHRC DOCKET No. 82-0569
SECRETARY'S WITHDRAWAL OF CITATION AND
NOTIFICATION OF PROPOSED PENALTY
The instant case concerns a citation alleging that respondent violated the personal protective equipment standard at 29 CFR 1926.28(a) by not requiring the use of safety belts during work on a flat roof. On April 19, 1984 the Commission issued a supplemental briefing order requesting the parties to comment on whether citation to 29 CFR 1926.28(a) is improper because 29 CFR 1926.500(g), dealing with fall protection on flat roofs during built-up roofing work, is a more specifically applicable standard within the meaning of section 1910.5(c)(1). Respondent had not raised this issue previously. Although there are factual questions as to whether the work in this case was built-up roofing work within the meaning of 29 CFR 1926.502(p)(3), the Secretary has determined that the instant case is an inappropriate vehicle for litigating the issue of the definition of built-up roofing work. Therefore, the Secretary hereby withdraws the citation and notification of proposed penalty in the above-captioned case.
