Title: Safety Standards for Scaffolds Used in the Construction Industry--Part II 
Abstract: Since the promulgation of a final rule for scaffolds used in construction in August 1996, several issues have arisen under the new standard. The agency will solicit information on issues including (1) providing access to platforms where decking extends past the ends of the scaffold; (2) changing the minimum width for roof brackets to less than 12 inches; (3) changing the requirements for grounding of the scaffold during welding operations; and (4) requiring the use of scaffold grade planks.
