F. Guidelines. For compliance purposes, OSHA field staff will assure that the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.212 and 217, with applicable sections, are applied as interpreted by this instruction.

In addition, field personnel have incorrectly attempted to enforce provisions of 29 CFR 1910.217 with regard to iron workers. 29 CFR 1910.212 is the appropriate standard to apply to ironworker machines.
