On July 28 1989, OSHA amended its Standard for Powered Platforms for Building Maintenance, 29 CFR 1910.66, Subpart F, to allow the use of alternative stabilization systems. The standard had allowed only stabilization systems which provided continuous positive means of engagement between the platform and the building facade. Such systems had proven to be infeasible for application to many new buildings with discontinuous vertical facades.

In addition, the amendment updates existing requirements using performance-oriented language, expands the scope to include coverage of interior installations (atriums) and includes requirements for emergency planning, employee training and personal fall protection for employees using powered platforms.

These new Federal amendments to 29 CFR 1910.66 have been adopted verbatim by the Commissioner of Labor with an effective date of June 1, 1990.
