Guardrail System : Working at heights without taking any risks!Agence Le Backstore
Guardrail System to help prevent falls .Falls at the workplace can happen anytime, especially when working at heights. Roofers, painters, material handlers, carpenters, installers are exposed daily to real dangers and are often using inappropriate equipment.
Falls from heights are the 3rd cause of work accidents with or without permanent disability (according to SEAT classification used by CNAMTS since 2013) and the 2nd cause of deaths. It is also the 2nd reason for days lost with temporary disability (source INRS).
In 2015, did you know that CNESST recorded more than 13 000 accidents caused by falls, including 12 resulting in a death? According to the law, it is prohibited to work at less than 1,98 m (6 ft 6 in) from the edge of a 3,05 m (10 ft) roof, unless a fall prevention system is installed.
Important to know:
When workers are exposed to a fall hazard over 3 m, the employer must install guardrails to prevent any falls or use another equivalent safety method. If this is not possible, workers must wear a harness attached to a specifically designed anchor point (Articles 2.9.1 and 2.9.2 of CSTC, Articles 9, 10, 33, al.1 par. 4 and 346 of RSST, Articles 4 and 51 of RSSM, Article 51(3) of LSST).
Attention! In case of noncompliance, the CNESST will stop the work and the wrongdoers may be liable to criminal proceedings. (source CNESST)
