Why do we have to met OSHA guardrail regulations?

OSHA designed the guardrail regulations for general industry or construction applications. These guardrails exist to limit employees, contractors or individuals. To avoid people from dangerous falls in the workplace.

Everyone must follow OSHA standards in environments where the public has limited access to the general public. The standards are less stringent because the guardrail does not need to withstand the same forces as an IBC guardrail.

These parameters establish railing design recommendations and safety requirements for roof designs. Such as railing height and vertical clearance.

OSHA and building code requirements often differ required strength and safety factor.

Roof railing requirements

For a roof railing to be effective in preventing a fall, it must be capable of withstanding the loads set forth in OSHA 1910. OSHA requires that the top bar of the guardrail be capable of withstanding 200 pounds of point load without failure.
 
Don’t forget that if you need roof railing, it is best to hire the experts to install it. This is to do it quickly, safely and efficiently.
