Dear Mr. Pirong:

This is in response to your letter requesting clarification of the OSHA Standard 1910.106(b)(5)(ii), page 23614 of Federal Register dated June 27, 1974.

A saddle has been described as a support device curved to fit the tank contour which may or may not be attached to legs. The measurement of the saddle to its lowest point would come in the middle of the curve. If it exceeds twelve inches to the ground or surface, the Standard requires that it be protected with a coating of fire resistive materials. Such coating is not required if the distance is less than twelve inches.

Please feel free to contract us if there are further questions about OSHA.

Sincerely,

Alfred Barden
Assistant Regional Director
Occupational Safety and Health
