Abstract
This testimony reported the results of a review by NIOSH of OSHA's proposed revisions of the Construction Industry Test and Inspection Records. NIOSH agreed with OSHA that current recordkeeping provisions of this standard be replaced with a written, signed, and dated certificate recording that the required testing and inspections had been performed. In its proposal OSHA also requested that the testing and inspection certifications be kept on file until the next time a test or inspection is conducted. NIOSH suggested they be filed for 12 months from the time of test or inspection. This would allow the employer and OSHA to have access to information that would allow more reasoned decision making. NIOSH also recommended that the proposed certification records contain a pass/fail notification for each item examined, that additional signatures of inspectors be required and that a stricter definition of what makes a person competent in the area of testings and inspections be included.
