Make sure that floors are safe.

You must:
• Make sure that floors including their parts and structural members are safe.
• Make sure floors are of substantial construction and kept in good repair. This includes floors of:
– Buildings
– Platforms
– Walks and driveways
– Storage yards
– Docks
• Make sure that structures are designed, constructed, and maintained to provide a safety factor of 4 times the imposed maximum strain.
– If you notice bowing, cracking, or other indications of excessive strain on a structure, you must take action to make sure it is safe.

This rule applies to all buildings or those that have had complete or major changes or repairs built after 5/7/74.
