In order to let daylight enter a building, a lot of roofs are equipped with skylights. Roof hatches or smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems can be found on a lot of rooftops as well. All these glazed areas are possible sources of danger for people who need to enter the roof. Most flat roofs are at the same time working areas, that need to be entered regularly for works such as maintenance tasks. Accidents during works like these might occur.
Next to falling from roof edges, falls through unsecured glazed areas are one of the most frequent causes for accidents. It happens quite often that people tend to overestimate the stability of skylights, which might be a fatal mistake as they cannot even be walked-over in most cases. Therefore, the risk of falling through necessarily needs to be eliminated by installing a protection system.
Installing a protection system to such endangered areas is not just reasonable, but also predicted by law.
There exist special guardrail systems that prevent the risk of falling through glazed areas and therefore ensure a secured workplace for contractors and maintenance crews.
