RE: OSHA 4-bolt column anchorage

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I can't recall this in the OSHA Subpart M. Subpart M is fall protection. Subpart R is steel erection. But I can't recall this requirement in Subpart R either.

A steel erector told me a last summer that not only do steel columns need four anchor rods, but OSHA Subpart M requires a column
that is not guyed nor braced by beams tying into it must be taken down
overnight. I was surprised, but as I have little to do with steel erection,
I did not look it up.
