Dear Mr. McKosky:
This is in response to your letter of March 3, 1982, concerning the minimum width of access to equipment.
A minimum width of 18 inches is acceptable for a walkway used for maintenance and gaining access to equipment and would comply with the intent of Section 1910.37, OSHA General Industry Standards.
If I may be of further assistance, please call or write.
