OSHA Fall Protection

Wasco Fall Protection units comply with OSHA Fall Protection Regulations

Fall protection was established by OSHA to provide a safe and healthful working environment and to limit falls from workers or tools from heights of 6’ or greater. OSHA regulations state that every skylight must be guarded by a standard skylight screen or fixed railing system that is capable of withstanding a load of at least 200 pounds.
