Dear Mr. Stafford:

This is in response to your April 4 letter requesting information about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) policy for stilts. We apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry.

At this time, OSHA has no specific rules or regulations regarding the use of stilts. However, as you mentioned in your letter, OSHA did raise an issue concerning stilts in the November 25, 1986, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and raised the issue again in the January 26, 1988, Notice of Informal Public Hearing (copies enclosed). Although the period for public comment on these issues is officially over, your letter has been forwarded to the Office of Construction and Civil Engineering Safety Standards as a late comment for possible review.

If we may be of further assistance, please contact Mr. Roy Gurnham or Mr. Dale Cavanaugh at (202) 523-8136.

Sincerely,



Patricia K. Clark
Director
Directorate of Compliance Programs
