The OSHA regulations for explosives and blasting agents were published in 1974. Two trade associations representing many of the employers subject to this rule have petitioned the Agency to consider revising it, and have recommended changes they believe address the concerns they are raising. OSHA published a proposed rule on April 13, 2007, and ended the comment period on July 17, 2007. The Agency has since decided to withdraw the proposed rule.
