Feb. 20: Guardrail Fact Sheet Released


The IRSST published a prevention fact sheet for contractors and workers who use guardrails. Entitled Les systèmes d’ancrage de garde-corps sur des toits plats (guardrail anchoring systems for flat roofs), the fact sheet provides information needed to ensure that the equipment is properly and firmly installed to prevent falls. By applying the fact sheet’s instructions, employers can make sure their guardrails are safe and provide adequate protection for workers, especially roofers, whose job is among the most hazardous.
