Pursuant to NRS 233B.0608 and 233B.0609, the Division is providing the following statements pertaining to the workshop on the proposed additions and amendments to Chapter 618 of the NAC.

The need and purpose of the proposed revisions to regulations: On January 12, 2023, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo issued Executive Order 2023-003, requiring every executive branch department, agency, board, and commission to undertake a comprehensive review of the regulations subject to its enforcement and provide details on how the regulation can be streamlined, clarified, reduced, or otherwise improved to ensure those regulations provide for the general welfare of the State without unnecessarily inhibiting economic growth. Executive Order 2023-003 further required every executive branch department, agency, board, and commission to provide a list of regulations recommended for removal. The Division of Industrial Relations, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) undertook such review and the proposed regulations, and amendments thereto, are in furtherance of the Division’s compliance with Executive Order 2023-003. Specifically, R027-23 removes provisions requiring the publication of certain notices in newspapers; revises the form in which recordings of certain hearings are required to be kept; and provides other matters properly relating thereto.

Further, Executive Order 2023-008, issued June 30, 2023, notes that the executive agencies, boards, and commissions subject to Executive Order 2023-003 shall begin the process of repealing, streamlining, clarifying, reducing, or otherwise improving regulations. This proposed regulation seeks to comply with Executive Order 2023-008.
