Rooftop Fall Protection for Schools and Other Educational Facilities

Education doesn’t just happen inside of a school building. The roof is a great place to teach kids about solar energy or rooftop gardening. However, with rooftop access comes a need for rooftop safety. In addition to students, maintenance and repair technicians are also likely accessing the roof. Skylights, refrigeration and air conditioning units and general rooftop maintenance can mean frequent rooftop visitors. As a building owner or manager, it is your responsibility to ensure anyone who accesses your roof, can do so in a safe and secure manner. It’s not only a good idea, it’s required by OSHA. Let’s take a look at some of the requirements and how you can get your rooftop fall protection into compliance.
