OSHA INSTRUCTION STD 3-6.1 OCTOBER 30, 1978

TO: REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS/OSHA

THRU: DONALD E. MACKENZIE Field Coordinator

Subject: 29 CFR 1926.250(b)(1), Material Storage--As Related to Interim Storage of Temporary Flooring Used in Steel Erection

1. Purpose

The purpose of this directive is to clarify the application of 29 CFR 1926.250(b)(1), Material storage, as related to temporary flooring.

2. Documentation Affected

This directive supersedes Field Information Memorandum #74-85 dated October 22, 1974.

3. Background

Contractors have been cited under 29 CFR 1926.250(b)(1), when temporary flooring, in use during skeleton steel construction in tiered buildings, is bundled and placed over the edge of outer periphery while waiting to be picked up by a crane or derrick for movement to another tier.

4. Action

a. The temporary flooring is, in fact, in-process equipment--not stored material, covered under the provisions of Subpart R--Steel Erection, 29 CFR 1926.750. Temporary flooring not actually in use and placed in an area on the jobsite for an indefinite time would be considered as stored material, 29 CFR 1926.250(b)(1).
b. The temporary flooring, when not in use as a floor, shall be properly bundled and braced to prevent movement until ready for use at the next tier.

OSHA INSTRUCTION STD 3-6.1 OCTOBER 30, 1978

c. While process temporary flooring is being bundled, braced, picked or placed, all other applicable standards for employee protection shall be enforced.

5. Effective Date

This directive is effective immediately and will remain in effect until canceled or superseded.
