The following rule-making action is adopted:

Amend subrule 32.8(10) as follows:

32.8(10) "Occupations involved in the operation of certain power-driven bakery machines" means the occupations of operating, assisting to operate or setting up, adjusting, repairing, oiling, or cleaning any horizontal or vertical dough mixer; batter mixer; bread dividing, rounding, or molding machine; dough brake; dough sheeter; combination bread slicing and wrapping machines; or cake cutting band saw and the occupations of setting up or adjusting a cookie or cracker machine. However, this definition does not apply to the operation of pizza dough rollers that are a type of dough sheeter that have been constructed with safeguards contained in the basic design so as to prevent fingers, hands, or clothing from being caught in the in-running point of the rollers, that have gears that are completely enclosed, and that have microswitches that disengage the machinery if the backs or sides of the rollers are removed, only when all the safeguards detailed in Iowa Code section 92.8(10) are present on the machinery, are operational, and have not been overridden.

This subrule is intended to implement Iowa Code section 92.8(10).
