What stair angles are too-steep or require special provisions for safety? This article series includes example stair building calculations, illustrations, and procedures. Page top stair dimension sketch courtesy of Carson Dunlop Associates.
Steeper slopes or angles are permitted for stepladders in certain applications as you can see in the illustration. Illustration: adapted from California Title 8, Ch. Stairways [PDF] Fig. E, Authority cited: Section Reference: Section The sketch shows the recommended and allowable range of slope or "steepness" or angle for access ramps yellow area , normal stairways green , stepladders and fixed ladders with treads beige and runged or cleated ladders pink.
The maximum stair slope for the overall stairway for stairs used as a public passageway between levels is also implicit in the maximum step riser height - typically 8" or in some codes such as New York, 8. Stair codes talk about slope chiefly when discussing how much out of level a stair tread may be from front to rear or from side to side to avoid a slip and fall hazard. Stairway at 38 degrees: what is the rise and foot? You are asking the rise and "run" of the treads.
There is no single answer, since we could choose different tread depths or "runs" that would give different tread rises or heights. But to stay within reason we chose a stair tread depth step run length of 10" in the equation above to obtain an individual step rise of 7. That is, on a 38 degree sloped stairway, we will ascend 7.
And for a special use of right triangles to square up building framing, also see USE the RULE detailed explanation and examples for framing squarely and at right angles. The proper lines to be used for calculating or measuring the pitch or slope of a stairway or the stair angle illustrated here are excerpted from Northern Ireland's stair, landing, ramp and guardrail code cited just below.
What is the height " and width " of the steps to be and what is the height from floor to ceiling be? Most of our stair inspection, construction, and repair articles focus on choosing a proper step riser height and stair tread depth since choosing those properly will guarantee a stairway that is also at an acceptable overall angle or slope. That assumes a ten-inch tread depth. Example: using a step rise of 7 inches and a step tread depth of 11 inches gives us a total of 18".
That's an ideal stairway slope of about 37 degrees - the same as you'll see in our illustration above, adapted from CA code.

OSHA estimates that there are 24, injuries and as many as 36 fatalities per year due to falls from stairways and ladders used in construction.
Nearly half of these injuries are serious enough to require time off the job, lost workday injuries and 13, non-lost workday injuries occur annually due to falls from stairways and ladders used in construction. These data demonstrate that work on and around ladders and stairways is hazardous.
More importantly, they show that compliance with OSHA's requirements for the safe use of ladders and stairways could have prevented many of these injuries. See our book review of this publication.

ANSI A This book is unique in that it is entirely devoted to falls. Of use to primary care physicians, nurses, insurance adjusters, architects, writers of building codes, attorneys, or anyone who cares for the elderly, this book will tell you how, why, and when people will likely fall, what most likely will be injured, and how such injuries come about.
Bakken, H. Harvey Cohen,A. Hyde, Jon R. Harvey Cohen, Jon R. Abele, Alvin S. Hyde, Cindy A. Fitch et al. OSHA regulations govern standards in the construction industry and in the workforce Quoting from OSHA whose focus is on workplace safety and so excludes discussion of falls and stair-falls in private homes: OSHA estimates that there are 24, injuries and as many as 36 fatalities per year due to falls from stairways and ladders used in construction.

You will find these regulations in the Building Decree External link Bouwbesluit as well as in your local building by-laws. You must also comply with building regulations and layout requirements that are relevant to your specific business activities. Moreover, if you plan to build, rebuild or renovate, in most cases you will need an All-in-one Permit for Physical Aspects omgevingsvergunning. In Environment and Spatial Planning Laws External link were simplified to make it quicker and easier for projects to get off the ground, this legislation is expected to come into force in If you plan to refurbish, build, demolish or occupy a building, you must comply with the Building Decree
