When working on scaffolding at heights of 10 feet or more above a lower level, guardrails must be installed. The guardrails will provide a physical barrier to prevent you from falling. The guardrail system must be installed along all open sides and ends of the platforms.
The guardrail system must be installed before the scaffold can be used by workers.
