Excerpt from "ROPs/seatbelts for roller compactors; lockout/tagout in construction."
Regarding roller compactors, you indicated that a study of BLS's Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries found that this type of equipment was most often involved in fatal overturns at road construction sites. However, as explained in OSHA's letters of interpretation dated 04/23, 1979, and August 8, 1991, that were enclosed with your letter, the Agency does not have a specific standard addressing compactors and rubber - tired skid steer equipment used in construction.
