The safety of others is of the utmost importance to VELUX. In addition to selecting the correct skylight for the application, VELUX recommends protecting all skylight openings and skylights with one or more of the fall protection accessories. All VELUX fall protection accessories are tested to withstand a minimum 400 pound static load.
VELUX recommends building owners and/or managers restrict roof access to everyone except personnel who have sufficient notice of skylight locations, are warned of the risk of falling, and made aware to not sit, step, or walk atop of skylights. Building owner or manager should provide fall protection around the skylight in accordance with OSHA regulations.
