Rule Number & Title

69L-6.025

Conditional Release of Stop-Work Order and Periodic Payment Agreement

Type Date - Time Location

Hearing

May 17, 2018
9:30 A.M.

Hartman Building, Room 102
2012 Capital Circle SE
Tallahassee, FL

Summary of Rule:

The proposed amendment to paragraph 69L-6.025(4)(b), F.A.C., will allow employers an additional opportunity to remain compliant with their payment agreement schedules by increasing the number of times the Department will rescind an Order Reinstating Stop-Work Order from two to three in any one case. The proposed amendment to subsection 69L-6.025(7), F.A.C., will allow employers who have made at least three monthly payments of the agreed amount to enter into a new payment agreement in lieu of making six monthly payments. Reducing the number of payments required from six to three will shorten the timeframe for entering into a new payment agreement. The proposed amendment also clarifies that these payments must be based on the employer’s current payment agreement schedule. The proposed amendment to subsection 69L-6.025(8), F.A.C., further clarifies that the Department will only enter into one payment agreement for the recently served penalty. This verifies that the employer can only have one payment agreement and it must be based on the last served penalty. The proposed amendment to subsection 69L-6.025(10), F.A.C., will require employers who have been issued a Stop-Work Order or Order of Penalty Assessment to provide address changes to the Department.

Rule Number & Title

69A-60.003

Standards of the National Fire Protection Association, NFPA 1, the Fire Code, Florida 2015 Edition, Adopted

Type Date - Time Location

Workshop

June 5, 2018 @ 10:00 A.M.

Fire College Auditorium
Florida State Fire College
11655 NW Gainesville Road
Ocala, FL

Purpose and Effect:

Section 633.202(1), F.S., requires the Division of State Fire Marshal to adopt, by rule, the Florida Fire Prevention Code (FFPC) every third year. Section 633.202(2), F.S., requires the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Standard 1 to be a part of the FFPC and allows the State Fire Marshal to modify the selected codes and standards as needed to accommodate the specific needs of the state.  Section 633.202(5)(d), F.S., allows the Division to address unintended results from the integration of Florida-specific amendments that were previously adopted with the model code. This rule amendment will update the FFPC to address an unintended result from the integration of a Florida-specific amendment contained in NFPA 1, Section 50.7 – Mobile and Temporary Cooking Operations, and add additional reference material adopted in the 2018 edition which will clarify the same section of NFPA 1 pursuant to Section 633.202(5)(d), F.S.
