This mandatory standard must be applied at all construction locations:

  • All edge protection, including scaffolds, roof and floor edges, must have suitable material fall protection measures installed at all times.
  • Materials protection must be of suitable strength and construction to contain materials they are intended to capture.
  • Debris netting should not be considered as suitable materials protection.
  • Any exceptions to these requirements must be fully detailed within a risk assessment and approved by the director responsible for the project.
