Zone Graphic


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.


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.


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.
