Ladder Spacing Requirement for Marine Dock?

Ladder Spacing Requirement for Marine Dock?

Ladder Spacing Requirement for Marine Dock?

Can anyone tell me what is the required maximum spacing between marine dock safety ladders for an industrial waterfront dock located in the Miami area?

The subject dock is a 1300-ft long sheet pile bulkhead located along the waterfront of an oil terminal, where barges frequently load/unload. At present, there are no such ladders and there is a concern regarding the lack of safety of someone that might fall in the water.

Is there a specifice code or regulation regarding this?


RE: Ladder Spacing Requirement for Marine Dock?

I THINK OSHA has a standard for ship building so, you may want to research that standard; also US Coast Guard may be of help.
