When did the requirement for guards when equipment is less than 10 feet from a roof edge come into effect? Have a client who is being pressured to add guards at exisitng roof edges by union maintenance staff that are pointing out the unsafe conditions that have been in place for at least 10 years. While we agree, some obvious situations warrant a guard others are borderline 8 or nine feet from a roof edge.
Any input is appreciated.
