Dear Ms. Edison:
This is in response to your letter of March 20, to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in which you requested that we review your company's Guard Rail System for compliance with OSHA standards.
Although OSHA does not approve or endorse products, due to the variable working conditions at jobsites and possible alterations or misapplication of an otherwise safe product, we can offer an opinion as to whether products as manufactured afford compliance with OSHA regulations. With regard to the Guard Rail System, we reviewed the information you submitted. It appears that if used according to the manufacturer's recommendation, the Guard Rail System is in compliance with our fall protection regulations.
If you have any questiors, please call me or Dale Cavanaugh of my staff at (202)219-8136.
Roy F. Gurnham, P.E., J.D.
