Subject: sharing an office
Boss tells me that there is an OSHA regulation that requires a 30"
egress space (her figure was 30 something, I believe she said 30") for
each person w/in an office.
The distance between my desk and my office mate's desk is 42". Boss is
still telling me I need to rearrange my desk!
Does anyone know what the OSHA requirements are on sharing an office
with one other person, on safety issues-which is the position of my
boss. She believes that the current placement of my desk does not allow
ME enough space to exit my office safely.
Just so you know, I am not wheelchair bound (nor is my office mate),
both my legs operate above normal; I exercise daily and am very fit ; )
Thanks, Peggy Lucero
