Abstract The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Board) initiates this rulemaking proposal to update Title 8 to the latest version of the California Manual on Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD) for Streets and Highways, which is also referred to as the “Manual. ” The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) publishes the Manual and adopted the CA MUTCD 2012 edition on January 13, 2012, to provide uniform standards and specifications for all official traffic control devices in California. The 2012 CA MUTCD supersedes the previously adopted January 21, 2010, edition. The revised CA MUTCD includes the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) 2009 MUTCD and includes all policies on traffic control devices issued by Caltrans since the January 21, 2010, edition of the Manual. Board staff notes, that the counterpart federal codes do not refer to the current FHWA MUTCD 2009 edition, but rather the 1988 edition, revision 3 version. This rulemaking action proposes amending Sections 1598(a) and 1599(a) of the Construction Safety Orders to reflect the latest edition of the CA MUTCD which is therein incorporated by reference. The proposed amendment updates the Title 8 reference from the September 26, 2006, CA MUTCD to the January 13, 2012, edition currently utilized by Caltrans. Significant changes
