    The commissioner shall make and promulgate rules and regulations reasonably  necessary to implement the purposes of this act.  Such rules and regulations  shall have the force and effect of law and shall be enforced in the manner  provided in this act.

    Buildings or other structures in use on the effective date of this act as a  place of employment other than a place where the manufacturing of goods of any  kind is carried on shall not be made to comply with the requirements of rules  and regulations promulgated hereunder substantially affecting such building or  other structures unless such compliance is essential to correct an unsafe or  unhealthful condition which constitutes a serious and substantial threat to the  health or safety of employees.

    The commissioner shall before promulgation furnish a copy of proposed rules  and regulations to the members of the committee for its review and recommendations.  Within 90 days of the receipt of said proposed rules and regulations the committee shall provide the commissioner and the board with its  written recommendations.  Following receipt of the committee's recommendations  or upon the expiration of 90 days, the commissioner shall furnish to every  member of the board a copy of the proposed rules and regulations with or  without change in his discretion and at the same time a notice of intent to  promulgate proposed rules and regulations shall be published by the  commissioner.  This notice of intent shall state briefly the purpose of the  proposed rules and regulations, shall state that a copy of the proposed rules  and regulations may be obtained by any person upon written request to the  department, and shall fix the date, time and place for a public hearing on the  proposed rules and regulations, which date shall be not less than 21 days after  the publication of the notice.  All person appearing at such hearing shall be  given the opportunity to be heard.  Rules and regulations, as so proposed or as  changed by the commissioner after such hearing, may be promulgated by the  commissioner 90 days following delivery to the board to be effective on such  date as the rules and regulations shall provide unless disapproved by a  majority of the board and if so disapproved such rules or regulations shall not  become effective.  Within 30 days after the public hearing and on 30 days'  notice the commissioner shall call a meeting of the board for the purpose of discussing the proposed rules and regulations.  If any changes were made in the  proposed rules or regulations following the public hearing, a copy of such  change shall accompany such notice.  At any meeting called for such purpose  disapproval shall be by vote of the majority of the members of the board.
