Main OSHA Regulation
1910.28(b)(1)(i) The employer must ensure that walking-working surfaces with an unprotected side or edge that is 4 feet (1.2 m) or more above a lower level is protected by: Guardrail systems, safety net systems, personal fall protection systems such as personal fall arrest or restraint.
What does this mean to you?
If the height of the mezzanine is more than 4’ above the lower surface, the fall edge must be protected with a fall prevention solution. Safety nets, fall arrest, and fall restraint systems are typically not practical for mezzanine work. A passive guardrail is inexpensive and requires no training or tie-off points that meet OSHA guidelines.
If pallets or other large materials need to move up to and down from the mezzanine a safety gate is needed to protect workers when pallets are moved and accessed.
Same is true in elevated pick modules or pallet flow lanes when at height.
