GUARDRAIL BASICS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
OSHA’s fall protection and guardrail requirements along with the International Building Code (IBC) are standards all builders, contractors and construction workers should follow for optimal building safety.
According to EHS Today, providing safety precautions in both fall protection and guardrails can help workers make sure they’re following all the proper procedures to avoid any potential accidents.
The key to providing a safe atmosphere within your building is to follow the standards set by both the International Code Council (ICC) and OSHA, whose standards crossover in fall protection and guardrail requirements.
That way, any individual – whether it be someone who is visiting or someone who is working inside a business-owned property – will be in a safe environment.
