RE: Toe plate required for BOCA stair?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Since OSHA, as Federal law, overrides all building codes, it is required.  Probably BOCA, et al, don't specifically put it in because it's Federal law and it would be redundant.
BTW, BOCA never overrides OSHA.  Priority of law is Federal, state, local.  Since OSHA is Federal, it always has priority and state and local cannot deviate from it.

Subject: Toe plate required for BOCA stair?

I am reviewing a stair/landing that does not have a 4" high toe plate.  I know that OSHA requires this, but the applicable code might be BOCA.  I can't find anything in BOCA that says that any toe plate is required.  Is it hidden somewhere, or is it just not required?
