DOB Proposed Rule

DOB Proposed Rule

By Renee Sosnowski

The DOB is proposing to add two new violation classifications, and to amend another. The new classifications will enable the DOB to ensure public safety and more effectively enforce the laws, rules and Commissioner’s orders related to the safe operation of construction equipment.

A Public Hearing to discuss the proposed changes was held on 3/24/16.
