Public Protection Site Safety Plan
More and more cities in North America are revising building codes to protect the public. For example in The City of Calgary – Commencing May 1, 2012, it is mandatory to provide a public protection site safety plan for construction, demolition and major alterations of the facade on buildings five storeys or greater within The City of Calgary or designated as a high building as per article 3.2.6 of the current Alberta Building Code
OSHA 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. PearlWeave Safety Debris Netting’s accepted guardrail/toeboard system is designed to provide protection in excess of these standards. When properly installed from a “compliant” 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.
OSHA’S 29CFR1926 for the construction industry and 29CFR1910 for the general industry mandate that every employer must provide a safe environment for their employees and must initiate and maintain programs to eliminate hazardous or dangerous conditions. Subpart M sets forth the requirements and criteria for fall protection in these workplaces. Violation of these requirements can result in costly fines, criminal penalties, high insurance premiums and lost production.
