Variations.


(a) The safety and health standards ex-
pressed in this part are intended for the
application of section 1(e) of the Walsh-

employment situations. The Director of the
Bureau of Labor Standards may apply vari-
ations from the provisions of this part in


enforcing the

Act whenever he finds that,


the particular


facts


circum-


stances involved, the plants, factories, build-
ings, surroundings, or working conditions
are not unsanitary or hazardous or danger-
ous to the health and safety of the em-


ployees involved.


Interested persons may


request such a variation by making appli-
cation therefore to the Director, Bureau of
Labor Standards, U.S. Department of Labor,

(b) The provisions of paragraph (a) of
this section shall not apply to 50-204.35
and 204.36 which contain separate and spe-
cific variations procedures.
(c) Requests for exceptions or exemp-
tions from the safety and health standards
required by the Walsh-Healey Public Con-

as permitted under section 6 of


the Act, are processed under
