Section 1926.451(c)(2) states: supported scaffold poles, legs, posts, frames, and uprights shall bear on base plates and mud sills or other adequate foundation. OSHA's Directive Number CPL 2 - 1.23 states: A concrete slab would be considered a firm foundation, and therefore mud sills would not be necessary.
