Mr. T. S. McKosky
Consulting Engineer
Bethlehem Steel Corporation
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania 18016

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.

Sincerely,



John K. Barto
Chief,
Division of Occupational Safety Programming
