Use fall protection systems to protect workers against falls on and around dangerous equipment
- Employers must protect employees from the hazards of falling onto or into various types of dangerous equipment.
Employees working six feet or more above dangerous equipment must be protected from falling by one of the following systems:
- Guardrail systems
- Personal fall arrest systems
- Safety net systems
Where a floor, roof, or other walking-working surface is less than six feet above such hazards, protect employees with either guardrails or equipment guards that shield the hazard. Safety nets or personal fall arrest systems would not be appropriate at this height.
Dangerous equipment means equipment (such as pickling or galvanizing tanks, degreasing units, machinery, electrical equipment, and other units) which, as a result of form or function, may be hazardous to employees who fall onto or into such equipment.
