Re: You Get What You Pay For


At some time in the recent past OSHA derated adjustable screws to only ~12 " from the legacy 16" before the welded/molested threads will stop the Nut from going any higher....

In a perfect scaffold world the screws pads are fastened to the top piece of dunnage that spans the ground from rear to front screw so the the section doesn't 'walk' or hairpin the vertical tubing.... or goosers are installed.

Nice work.


Do you ever leave any tie off hardware/points installed for future repairs?

I didn't know about the derating...but I do like the longer screws, admittedly though, when you reach that weld, it feels a little too high.

I learned early on about goosers, and you're right...towers can easily walk as I witnessed first hand on several occasions.

The only time I would leave tie-offs is if the owner requested them.

I expect to see embedded OSHA roofing tie offs in most new and re-shingled roofs, at least a threaded fitting rated at 5,000+ lbs along the ridge lines.

more US workers are hurt driving to and from work then at work currently....... and several times more are killed or injured by their health care professionals' errors, but OSHA ignores these threats to American workers...
