The study provides estimates of the economic consequences likely to result from the proposed OSHA standard for servicing split rim truck tires. This standard will regulate the assembly, disassembly, maintenance and safety precautions necessary in servicing tires installed on multipiece rims. Major findings include: (1) The population at risk is approximately 322,000 persons. These persons are employed in 102,500 workplaces in ten industry segments. (2) Provisions of the standard resulting in economic impact include the use of restraining devices, clip-on chuck assemblies and training. (3) Cost, productivity, employment, critical materials, energy and market structure impacts were examined. No significant impacts on any of these areas were found to result from compliance with the standard.
