Protecting Rooftop Access Points

Access points are the most frequented hazard on any rooftop.

Access Points Art 2

When climbing up onto the rooftop to perform maintenance tasks, there is a high potential to slip or fall and workers are exposed to this risk twice - every time they enter and exit the roof to work. If a maintenance professional is required to access the roof 8 times per year, they are exposed to the access point hazard 16 times.

Recent changes in OSHA code has determined that chains are no longer a viable safety measure across ladderways or hatches. OSHA now requires that all ladders and hatches be secured with a self-closing gate and safety-compliant railing.
