Development of standards and regulations
A. Safety standards and regulations shall be formulated in the following manner:
1. The division shall either propose adoption of national concensus standards or federal standards or draft such regulations as it considers necessary after conducting sufficient investigations through the division's employees and through consultation with the board and other persons knowledgeable in the business for which the standards or regulations are being formulated.
2. Proposed standards or regulations, or both, shall be submitted to the commission for its approval.
B. Any person who may be adversely affected by a standard or regulation issued under this article may, at any time within sixty days after such standard or regulation is promulgated by the commission, file a complaint challenging the validity of such standard or regulation with the superior court of the county in which the person resides or has his principal place of business, for a judicial review of such standard or regulation. The filing of such a complaint shall not, unless otherwise ordered by the court, operate as a stay of the standard or regulation. The determinations of the commission shall be conclusive if supported by substantial evidence in the record considered as a whole.
C. In case of conflict between standards and regulations, the regulations shall take precedence.Prev | Next
