There are no OSHA-mandated requirements for "canceling" a written program when it is not applicable. However, the best practice would be to put a cover-page on it and state its cancellation, reason for the cancellation, who is doing the canceling and the date it is no longer "active."

Generally speaking, any document that is procedural should have some documentation for revision including deactivation.

Hello folks. I would like to rescind our respirator program due to lack of need (no actionable levels for two years running). Are there any specific things that need to be done besides collecting the respirators that were distributed? Thank you kindly.
