OSHA Stair Compliance
Determine code requirements.
The first question to ask is what is the use of the structure? If it is strictly for equipment or mechanical systems, then it is likely an equipment platform or a catwalk and must comply with the OSHA catwalk requirements. If any other use, it is a mezzanine that must have IBC-compliant industrial stairs to access. FCP OSHA stairways are acceptable for equipment support platforms.
An equipment platform is not considered a portion of the floor below and the stairways, alternating tread devices and ladders providing access to an equipment platform shall not serve as a part of the means of egress from the building. So, stairways to equipment platforms will typically need to comply only with the OSHA stair requirements.
