Abstract: Since the promulgation of a final rule for scaffolds used in construction in August 1996, several issues have been raised that require reevaluation of certain requirements and the possible need to add new requirements to address concerns not addressed in the present standard. These issues include: (1) access to platforms where decking extends past the ends of the scaffold; (2) changing the minimum width for roof brackets to less than 12 inches; (3) changing the grounding requirements during welding operations; (4) requiring the use of scaffold grade planks. This rulemaking action will address these issues.
