ISI – IUPUI Multi-Disp Project:  Warning lines systems are a cost effective way to ensure compliance in terms of OSHA fall protection standards.  There are common issues found on sites in regard to warning lines systems.  

When roofing operations are underway, these lines must be set 6 ft from the edge.  
These lines must also have force resistance, specifically in terms of the vertical stanchions, of 16 lbs.  

When non-roofing operations are in progress, these lines must be moved to the distance of 15 ft from the edge.  

At all times, flagging should be present every 6 ft.  This allows all workers on a site to maintain visibility of this system.  

When operations are performed outside of these flagged areas, personal fall protection is required.
