Dear Mr. Shuzman:
Thank you for your letter of January 12 in which you request clarification of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) policy on steel erection fall protection requirements. I apologize for the delay of this response.
As you may know, Subpart M -- Safety Standards for Fall Protection in the Construction Industry has been stayed administratively as to its application to steel erection activities on non-building structures. To further define the scope of the stay action, we are in the process of developing a memorandum to clarify various terms such as "building," "non-building structure," "steel erection activities" and "tiered." As soon as that effort is completed, we will forward a copy to you.
In the meantime, if you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Roy F. Gurnham or Mr. Dale Cavanaugh of my staff in the Office of Construction and Maritime Compliance Assistance at (202) 219-8136.
James W. Stanley,
Deputy Assistant Secretary
