We are working on a rooftop at a height of 12 feet, do the workers have to use fall arrest equipment?
If there is a work area on the roof that has a designated control zone of 6 feet from any leading edge of the building, the workers do not have to utilize fall arrest equipment inside that designated zone. If the workers are accessing the rooftop utilizing an aerial work platform, the workers must be equipped with fall arrest equipment. The control zone must prevent workers from accidentally entering the area and being exposed to a fall. There must also be a fall prevention plan in place utilizing the form HSE-PRA-016-F002-Project Specific Fall Protection Plan.
