RE: OSHA Column Requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

OSHA distinguishes between columns and posts (posts weigh 300 pounds or less).  The (4) anchor bolt requirement applies to columns, but as I see it, does not apply to posts.  Do you have a “column” or a “post”?  Check out the OSHA website for more info.

Subject: OSHA Column Requirements


I have a small industrial support structure and I want to have pinned connections (that is, 2-bolt baseplates) in order to avoid transferring overturning moments to the foundations.  Does OSHA provide any exceptions to the 4-anchor bolt column requirement?
