Passive guardrail fall protection in 60 seconds

Michael Angelo explains passive guardrail fall protection in 60 seconds:

Transcript:

Hi, MichaelAngelo here from dakotasafety.com.  I want to do a quick 60 second or less overview of fall protection.  Let's take a look at the numbers. There are three key numbers that you need to know.  Four feet - anything over four feet or higher someone that can fall from that needs to be protected.   We've all known about the six-foot rule, but there's also a 15-foot rule.  

Let's take a look at this on the screen:

  • zero to six feet is the hazard zone. That's the thing you have to have protection for according to OSHA, but now they have a new rule since 2017
  • 6 to 15 feet, you have to have a plan
  • Anything over 15 feet is safe.

What are those areas that you should be looking at? You should be looking at stairs, ladders, hatches, leading edges, equipment, chillers, skylights, and construction edge work.
