Dear Mr. Goldenberg:

This is in response to your letter of March 5, concerning the application of 29 CFR 1916.500(d)(1) in view of two U.S. Court of Appeals decisions and an Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission decision.

We have been informed by the Office of the Solicitor of Labor that 29 CFR 1926.500(d)(1) should not be cited for any roofing operation. However, 29 CFR 1926.28(a) or 29 CFR 1926.105(a) may be applicable for certain roofing operations which do not fall within the 29 CFR 1926.500(g) definition of "built-up" roofing work.

If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.

Sincerely,



John B. Miles, Jr., Director
Directorate of Field Operations
