Scaffold Regulations

OSHA scaffold regulations are currently found in the 1926 and 1910 standards.  Most scaffolds are governed by 29CFR1926, Subpart L.  This standard applies anytime a “construction-type activity” is to performed from the scaffold.  This is true even in general industry (1910 type) facilities. The location of the scaffold does not determine the standard applicability, but rather the activity to be performed on the scaffold.

HLL Requirements

All horizontal lifeline designs must be approved by a qualified engineer who is a specialist in this field (OSHA 1910.66, Appendix C, and 1920.500, Appendix C). Readers are expected to use the most recent standards.  OSHA standards may be checked at www.OSHA.gov and ANSI standards at www.ANSI.org. States with their own plans must update their standards within six months of any change in the federal OSHA standards.
