Here is a brief overview of what this regulation requires:[/vc_column_text][ultimate_icon_list icon_size=”20″ icon_margin=”12″][ultimate_icon_list_item icon=”Defaults-check” icon_color=”#717e86″]Fall protection must be in place before any worker starts work.[/ultimate_icon_list_item][ultimate_icon_list_item icon=”Defaults-check” icon_color=”#717e86″]When used, guardrails must be at least 42 inches (+/- 3”) from the walking/working level, with screen or a parapet wall at least 21 inches high.
