Industrial Board

Meeting Dates

The Industrial Board is a group of primarily private citizens who have authority to review certain matters related to the Department of Labor & Industry mainly concerning construction. It also has the authority to grant variances to certain regulations.

Under the Administrative Code of 1929, the Industrial Board consists of six members - one a licensed architect, one a licensed engineer, one a representative of the building industry with experience in building safety, one a representative of an employee organization with experience in building safety, and two representatives of the general public. These members are appointed by the Governor and are confirmed by a majority vote of the Senate. The Secretary of Labor & Industry, or the secretary's designee, is Chairman of the Board.

Act 80 gives the Industrial Board the authority to establish technical Advisory Boards to assist in the performance of its duties. Currently, there are two Advisory Boards: the Boiler Advisory Board and the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Advisory Board. These Advisory Board members are appointed by the Secretary of Labor & Industry. These Boards were established to draft, maintain, and interpret regulations and to give technical advice on variances and appeals. The Advisory Boards meet at the call of the Chairman.

The Industrial Board meets at least once each month to hold hearings and to consider appeals and requests on the following regulations within its jurisdiction. Click here for specific information on these Laws and Regulations administered or monitored by the Department of Labor & Industry.
