RE: Column Anchor Bolt Placement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A "column" per OSHA is defined as a vertical member that is greater than 300
pounds in weight and/or part of the "primary skeletal framing system".
Anything supporting the main floors, roof and walls of the building and/or
part of the lateral load system is a "column" by OSHA.

A "post" per OSHA is defined as a vertical member that is less than 300 lbs
in weight, axially loaded only, and not part of the primary skeletal framing
system.  Tubular members supporting stairs and mezzanines would be most
likely to qualify as "posts" by OSHA.
