Guardrails Are Critical For Fall Protection

Guardrails Are Critical for Fall Protection

According to OSHA, the most frequent accidents in the workplace are falls. Unfortunately, falls are often fatal. Our team woke up this morning with the shocking news of a workplace fatality. Lack of guardrails around a skylight was the ultimate reason for the fatal fall.

If your building has a skylight, you need to have them inspected for compliance. Skylights rarely meet OSHA regulations unless they have secondary measures such as guardrails or safety screens. This issue is often overlooked because customers are told their skylights meet regulations requirements, when in fact they do not. Passive fall restraint systems like guardrails can be the difference between life and death when working at heights.
