Rooftop ladder egress

I have a building that is 100 feet wide by 800 feet long on the roof. Does anyone know how many egress ladders down I need for this roof? It is normally accessed via a powered manlift. But the employees get out onto the roof to do maintenance work, etc. and were wondering how many points of egress down to the ground other than the manlift that they need. I called OSHA but they are in a meeting and haven't returned my call yet so I'm reaching out to everyone else.....

Thanks…
