Housekeeping shall be conducted as follows:
- When not being used, materials, equipment and tools that might fall from levels above areas used by the public shall be kept away from edges or openings.
- When exterior walls are not in place, stored material shall be kept at least 10 feet (3048 mm) back from the perimeter of the building. However, when the floor area is less than 1,000 square feet (304.8 square meters), stored material may be kept not less than 5 feet (1524 mm) back from the perimeter of the building.
- Material may be stored between 5 and 10 feet (1524 and 3048 mm) back from the perimeter of the building when such material weighs less than 750 pounds (340.2 kg).
- Material stored on floors of a building or elsewhere on the site shall be secured when not being used.
Storage of materials at top working floors shall comply with the following:
- Material may be stored within 2 feet (610 mm) of the edge of a building provided that such material is stored not more than two stories below the stripping operation on concrete structures, or the uppermost concrete floor on steel frame structures. Such material shall be secured against accidental movement. Storage of material on all other floors shall conform to Section 3303.4.5.1 and shall be secured when not being used.
- No material shall hang over the edge of a building unless banded and braced preparatory to relocation at the end of the workday. Where such material is so banded and braced, it may overhang the floor of the stripping operation by not more than one-third of its length so long as it is relocated on the next workday for concrete operations.
- Where the steel mill and lumber mill are located, material may overhang for relocation until the next workday. No more than two floors shall be designated as steel mills or lumber mills.
