Dear Mr. Nichols:

This is in response to your May 11 letter reguestlng a letter of compliance from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for your Super Anchor Fall Arrest Bracket and Super Anchor Fall Restraint Safety Nail.

As you know, OSHA does not approve nor endorse products. The variable working conditions at jobsites and possible alterations or misapplication of an otherwise safe product could easily create a hazardous condition beyond the control of the manufacturer. However, we have reviewed the product data enclosed with your letter and it appears that if the Super Anchor Fall Arrest Bracket and Safety Nail are properly installed and maintained, the user would be in compliance with Federal OSHA's fall arrest anchoring reguirements.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact me or Mr. Dale Cavanaugh of my staff at (202) 523-8136.

Sincerely,



Roy F. Gurnham, P.E., Esq. Director
Office of Construction and Maritime
Compliance Assistance
