  • Type: Text Slide
  • Content:

At the bottom left is slide number 23.

At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.

Speaker Notes:

Guardrail systems are designed to prevent workers from falling. Once properly installed, guardrails are sometimes referred to as "passive fall protection." That means it requires no action by the worker to be safe as long as the system is properly maintained.

And remember, whenever there's a possibility for objects to fall on workers below, you must install toe boards.
