In OSHA Regulations and their Complexity construction site expert witness William Gulya, Jr., President & CEO, Middlesex Trenching Company, writes:
Pick up the phone
Instead of beating your head against the wall endlessly searching OSHA or other agency websites, just pick up the phone and call them. You can even do so anonymously. This is one of the most expedient ways to make sure you get the right answers to your specific question. Too often people send off a sterile email that does not get a timely reply or the reply only provides you with more questions. To get the answers you need in a timely fashion, pick up the phone and talk to a real person; get a sense of their point of view, knowledge and conviction.
