About Roof Hatch & Skylight Fall Protection Safety Rails

Roof Hatch & Skylight Fall Protection Safety Rails

BlueWater Roof Hatch and Skylight Guardrail Systems are expansions of the SafetyRail 2000. In most situations, OSHA (Std. 29 CFR 1910.29) requires guardrail protection on the exposed sides of openings in roofs and floors. As part of our SafetyRail 2000, our Roof Hatch and Skylight Systems exceeds these standards, and is the only product available on the market with a gate assembly that meets the same OSHA regulations and requires no drilling into any surface for installation.

A setup using a chain DOES NOT meet (Standards – 29 CFR ) 1910.23 (a)(2)
The chain does not provide a mid-rail as required. Click here to see the most recent OSHA interpretation.

1910.23(a)(3)(i)
Hinged floor opening cover of standard strength and construction equipped with standard railings or permanently attached leave only one exposed side. When the opening is not in use, the cover should be closed or the exposed side should be guarded at both top and intermediate positions by removable standard railings.
