Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (A)  True
Explanation:
The proposed revision of Subpart D includes a replacement requirement for step bolts bent more than 15 degrees below the horizontal. This is similar to item (e) of Section 9.1.1.1, "Step Bolts," in the IEEE Trial Guide for Fall Protection for Utility Work (IEEE Standard 1307-1996), which defines "failure" as occurring when step bolts are "bent greater than .26 rad (15 degrees) below the horizontal."
