TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:
Type: Text and Image Slide
Some builders use 24" OC studs for non-load bearing walls. Prior to installation of drywall, temporary guardrail systems must be installed to prevent workers from falling through the studs.
At the bottom left is slide number 66.
At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.
[Includes image of the inside of a constructed wood-framed home. One of the constructed walls has the studs positioned 24". The image has a red circle around the wall with a line through the circle.]
Falling from roofs is not the only area where fatalities have occurred. Open sides like this must be protected.
