1. Fall protection
      1. During the design phase, request a voluntary consultation with OSHA via EH&S to review fall protection requirements/needs.
      2. OSHA requirements for fall protection and safety railings at roof perimeters are to be followed.
      3. Fall protection systems are required on every new roof and every re-roofing project if not already present. 
    2. Preferred locations for tie-off mounts are on vertical walls or parapets. Horizontal locations that require additional deck and/or roofing penetrations shall be avoided.
    3. Snow and Ice Protection
      1. Design roofs to protect people from ice and snow slides from building roofs. Assure that all walks and building entries are safe distances from slide zones.
      2. Ice and Snow Guards shall be installed above pedestrian walkways on metal roofs
