Dear Mr. Cupp:
This is in response to your recent letter in which you request the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to review your Pole-Cupps scaffold support system.
As you know, it is the policy of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration not to approve or endorse products. The variable working conditions at jobsites and possible alteration or misapplication of an otherwise safe product could easily create a hazardous condition beyond the control of the product manufacturer. However, we have reviewed the information provided in your letter and it appears the Pole-Cupps system, if properly installed on a sufficiently strong roof, would provide adequate scaffold support and be in compliance with OSHA's scaffold rules.
If we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact either myself or Mr. Dale Cavanaugh of my staff at (202) 219-8136.
Roy F. Gurnham, Esq., P.E.
