    Title: Fall Hazard
    Type: Text and Image Slide

    Each employee on walking/working surfaces shall be protected from falling through holes (including skylights) more than 6 feet (1.8m) above lower levels, by personal fall arrest systems, covers, or guardrail systems erected around such holes (1926.501(b)(4)).
    This open-sided stairwell opening can be protected by a guardrail system (and handrail system - 1926.1052(c)).

    At the bottom left is slide number 68.

    At the bottom right is OSHA's logo.

    And, this open-sided stairwell opening must be protected.
