OSHA requires that employers protect workers where “wall openings” create fall hazards. The best practice for wall openings is SafetyRespect’s Barrier system or Adjustable link bars. They are mobile, easy to install and inspect, and create collective edge protection for the entire job site.
Wall brackets on each side of the opening together with Adjustable link bars should be used. The Adjustable link bars are available in three different sizes for openings from 19” to 8’ 2”. This solution makes it easy to remove and put back the edge protection when various types of work are to be carried out, and it also leaves space for different types of lead-throughs.
