Rooftop Zone Defense


Kee Safety offers comprehensive fall protection solutions that protect your workforce. We offer a full line of products that reduce your workers' risk of fall and injury. Below please find examples of sample risk assessments based on zone type.

Zone Graphic

ZONE 1:

When work is performed less than 6 feet from the roof edge, employees must be protected from falling by a guardrail system, a travel restraint system, or personal fall arrest system.

ZONE 2:

Working 6’ to 15’ from the roof edge, employees must be protected with the same systems mentioned above, however, a designated area may be implemented when rooftop work is both infrequent and temporary.

ZONE 3:

Working 15’ or more from the roof edge the same criteria as above, however, implementation and enforcement of a work rule prohibiting access within 15’ of the roof edge without using fall protection is acceptable.

Rooftop Fall Protection: An Integrated Solution

When access to the entire roof is required, the safest, most comprehensive solution is a perimeter railing system that surrounds and protects all roof edges.

Recommended Product

KeeGuard® On a flat roof, a protected perimeter limits access to the leading edge. Installing a modular, free-standing railing system that does not penetrate the roof membrane provides a safe barrier to the roof edge.
