Doomsview (Toronto), Ontario, Canada M3H 559

Dear Mr. Rosenthal:

This is in response to your letter of March 10 requesting guidance on the spacing of guardrail brackets used on flying forms.

The post spacing of guardrail brackets (post sockets) at 14-foot intervals would be permissible if the guardrail system provides the equivalent protection of a spacing of 8-feet.

Your effort in supplying equipment to ensure the safety of the worker in the job environment is to be commended.

If you require further information, please contact Jack Matthews at (202) 523-8132.

Sincerely,



Leo Carey, Director
Directorate of Field Operations
