Walking-working surfaces

Topic index


Everyone knows that surfaces do not walk or work, yet Oregon OSHA has many requirements that apply to them. So it’s important to know what they are. Essentially, a walking-working surface is any surface on which a person walks or works. But the devil is in the details. You will find a nuanced definition of a walking-working surface in Oregon OSHA's construction rules. See: Division 3, Subdivision M: 437-003-1500(7).

You will find the general industry requirements for walking-working surfaces in Division 2, Subdivision D: Walking-working surfaces.
