OSHA 1926.500-Subpart M requires guardrail and toeboard systems on all open-sided floors, platforms, runways, wall openings, holes, roofs, excavations, and machinery areas
OSHA 1926.500-Subpart M requires guardrail and toeboard systems on all open-sided floors, platforms, runways, wall openings, holes, roofs, excavations, and machinery areas. Additionally, when equipment or materials are piled higher than the top edge of a standard toeboard, debris netting must be installed from the top rail to deck level to provide overhead protection for employees working below.
The PearlWeave Solution
PearlWeave Safety Netting's accepted guardrail/toeboard system is designed to provide protection in excess of these standards. When properly installed from required top-rail and secured directly to deck level, PearlWeave satisfies OSHA requirements for mid-rail and toeboard protection, as well as overhead protection as defined above.
