Ask The Consultant
By Chuck Daleo

Q: Whatever happened to conventional framing?

For this question, I’m going to stick with the California Residential Code (CRC) since most room additions will use conventional framing.

Rich is actually referring to the “older” codes in which specific framing requirements were listed. They were in Chapter 23 and the Chapter was simply titled Wood. I used this chapter as part of my classes when I was teaching at Fullerton College. It was easy to learn from and was a great teaching tool.

Structural Iron and Steel Worker Safety

In the process of constructing the iron and steel backbone of buildings, bridges, and other major structures, structural iron and steel workers hoist, maneuver, weld, rivet, and bolt heavy, awkward girders, columns, and plates all while working at great heights. Because of the size and weight of the materials they handle, and the often dizzying heights at which they work, iron and steel workers cannot ignore workplace hazards.

Falls are a serious hazard. If you’re an iron or steel worker, get training in your company fall prevention program, which may include nets, scaffolding or fall protection harnesses. Ensure that you wear the appropriate fall protection gear each and every time that you work at heights. All of the components of your fall protection should be compatible, preferably from a single manufacturer. Make sure that you have the appropriate anchoring and positioning mechanisms for your job task. Inspect your gear every time you put it on and don’t use it longer than the manufacturer’s recommended lifetime for the materials.

Seguridad para Trabajadores en Estructuras de Hierro y Acero

En el proceso de construcción del esqueleto de hierro y acero para edificios, puentes y otras estructuras mayores, los trabajadores del hierro y acero levantan, maniobran, sueldan, remachan y sujetan con pernos vigas pesadas, columnas y placas mientras trabajan a grandes alturas. Debido al peso de los materiales que manejan y las vertiginosas alturas a que trabajan, los trabajadores del hierro y el acero no pueden dejar de tener en cuenta los peligros en sus sitios de trabajo.

Las caídas son un serio peligro. Si usted es un trabajador del hierro y el acero, capacítese en el programa de prevención de caídas de su empresa, lo que puede incluir redes, andamios y arneses de protección contra caídas. Asegúrese de usar los equipos apropiados de protección contra caídas cada vez que trabaje a gran altura. Todos los componentes de su sistema de protección contra caídas deben ser compatibles, de preferencia hechos por el mismo fabricante. Asegúrese de tener el anclaje y los mecanismos de posicionamiento apropiados para sus tareas de trabajo. Inspeccione sus equipos cada vez que se los ponga y no los use más allá de la vida útil recomendada por el fabricante de los materiales.

Capitol Connection Q&A for Contractors
By Shauna Krause, President, Capitol Services, Inc

WHelp for a General with ‘concrete’ plans to win the bids! Coming back from overseas, this contractor may be ‘guilty’ by association unless he acts fast. What could be better in a heat wave than a dip in a ‘pools’ question, and be sure to do more than wave goodbye when your CEO heads out the door...

Q:  I currently have an “A” (General Engineering) license in CA. While I know I can do concrete work with my “A” license, sometimes in order to do a foundation or a sidewalk, people want to see that we have the “C-8” (Concrete) classification on our license. How do I go about sitting for the exam and adding it to our license?
