National Safety Stand-Down: Warning Lines - How to Prevent Roof Falls

National Safety Stand-Down: Warning Lines - How to Prevent Roof Falls National Safety Stand-Down: Warning Lines - How to Prevent Roof Falls

Warning lines are one of the oldest forms of fall protection mandated by OSHA for low slope roof projects. The basics of the system are that warning lines must be made of rope, wire or chain. The flags must be visible, present every six feet, 34 to 39-inches from roof level and erected at a minimum of six feet from the fall hazard. Most workers generally think about warning lines and safety monitors as a means of fall protection for the unprotected edge; but warning lines can be used to establish a barrier for multiple rooftop fall hazards. The warning line system continues to be a versatile tool in the roofing industry even with the increasing use of temporary guardrails and engineered systems.
