Between OSHA and general safety practices, most, if not all, buildings need fall protection.
At what height is fall protection required? According to OSHA, any building — regardless of how tall it is and the number of floors or stories — must have protection if there’s the possibility of a four-foot fall.
If you have a tall building, and there’s no reason for anyone to be on that roof ever, you don’t need fall protection. This type of building in the actual world does not exist.
You’re always going to have somebody that needs to access the roof, gutters, air conditioning units, plumbing, mechanical, etc. Everything that requires maintenance on a roof within 15 feet of the edge must have a fall protection system in place. If your building doesn’t, we need to install one.
