Never descend the ladder facing away from the ladder.

OSHA CONFORMANCE
A frequently asked question is whether a ships ladder conforms to OSHA. The answer is somewhat complicated.
There is no single OSHA standard which specifically relates to the ships ladder design shown here. This product is
a hybrid which is neither a stair nor ladder and therefore has dimensions and design parameters which overlap and/or
conflict with OSHA standards for fixed stairways (Standard 1917.120) and fixed ladders (Standard 1910.27). Also
included below is a reprint of a standard interpretation letter from OSHA dated 2/10/2006.
Does this product meet OSHA requirements? We believe the answer is yes when; restricted areas preclude alternatives
and a due diligence safety review of the intended use and application has been performed by the end user. These ships
ladders are not intended to replace applications which require regular stairways but rather to fulfill the needs created
by restricted areas. Responsibility for determining the suitability of a particular use and application rests with the
purchaser.

STANDARD INTERPRETATIONS
02/10/2006 - The use of ship's stairs instead of fixed stairs in general industry.
• Standard Number: 1910.27
February 10, 2006
Ms. Erin Flory
Indiana Department of Labor
402 W. Washington Street, Room W195
Indianapolis, IN 46204
Dear Ms. Flory:
Thank you for your July 20, 2005, fax to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Your letter was
forwarded to the Directorate of Enforcement Program's (DEP's) Office of General Industry Enforcement for response.
This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation only of the requirements discussed and may not be applicable to any
questions not delineated within your original correspondence. You had specific questions regarding the use of ship's
stairs in general industry.
The questions below have been restated for clarity.
Question 1: Are ship's ladders (also known as ship's stairs) required to meet the fixed ladder requirements in
29 CFR 1910.27?
Response: No. The standards for fixed ladders in §1910.27 do not apply to ship's stairs.
Question 2: Can ship's stairs be used in general industry?
Response: Existing §1910.27 does not address ship's stairs. However, the 1990 Proposed Rule for Subpart D, Walking and Working Surfaces, 55 Federal Register 13360, addresses this issue at proposed §1910.25, Stairs, paragraph (e)(1), which states, "Ship's stairs shall be installed at a slope between 50 degrees and 70 degrees from the horizontal." Where an employer is in compliance with the provisions of a proposed standard, it is OSHA's general policy to treat the violation of an existing requirement as a de minimis violation. Therefore, in areas where conventional industrial stairs cannot be installed due to limited space availability, then OSHA would consider the installation of fixed industrial stairs with a slope between 50 degrees to 70 degrees from the horizontal to be a de minimis violation. De minimis violations are violations of standards which have no direct or immediate relationship to safety or health, and do not result in a citation, or penalty and need not be abated.

Thank you for your interest in occupational safety and health. We hope you find this information helpful. OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards, and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA's website at http://www.osha.gov. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the Office of General Industry Enforcement at (202) 693-1850.

Sincerely,

Richard E. Fairfax, Director
Directorate of Enforcement Programs
