21.9 Working from scaffolds.
(a) Compliance with Part (Rule No.) 23.
Every scaffold used for cleaning by this method shall be designed, constructed, installed, operated and maintained in compliance with all relevant provisions of Part (Rule No.) 23, Protection of Persons Employed in Construction and Demolition Work, as amended, except as the board may otherwise provide in this Part (rule) or in a resolution of approval of a specific scaffold or type thereof.
(b) Maintenance and inspection requirements.
(1) The owner of the scaffold shall establish and maintain a log showing inspection and maintenance work performed on the scaffold. The maintenance schedule and log sheet, recorded on forms furnished by the commissioner, shall be available at the site for use by the commissioner or his authorized representative.
(2) Prior to being put into operation on any day, the scaffold shall be subjected to a preliminary inspection and test to assure its safe condition. Results of this inspection shall be noted in the log. This inspection shall be performed by the foreman or other responsible person trained in the use and operation of the scaffold.
(3) Upon discovery of any substantial defect or abnormal condition in the scaffold or any part thereof, the scaffold shall be placed out of operation until such time as the abnormality or defect has been corrected and the scaffold restored to its normal condition.
(c) Suspended scaffolds—75 feet or more.
Every suspended scaffold so used including both manually or power operated types shall be approved if it is or is intended to be suspended from any point which has an elevation 75 feet or more above the nearest street or ground surface.
(d) Suspended scaffolds—not exceeding 75 feet; lifelines.
(1) Every scaffold including both manually and power operated types which is suspended or is intended to be suspended from any point not exceeding 75 feet in elevation above the nearest street or ground surface is required to be approved only in respect to any hoisting machine which may be used thereon, provided that all other components comply with Part (Rule No.) 23. A block and tackle is not construed to be a hoisting machine. Any part of such scaffold assembly and suspension which is not named or described in Part (Rule No.) 23 is required to be approved pursuant to section 23.26 of said Part (rule).
(2) Each person working on such a suspended scaffold shall be provided with and shall use an approved safety belt. Each belt shall have its own lifeline, which shall consist of a hanging line and a tail line. The tail line shall be of minimum practical length and shall be attached to the hanging line by an approved special device to allow vertical adjustment of the point of attachment. The lifeline shall be securely attached to a sufficient anchorage.
