OSHA WARNING LINE REQUIREMENTS
Warning-line Systems: 1926.502(f)
Warning-line systems consist of ropes, wires or chains, and supporting stanchions are set up as follows:
- The lowest point, including sag, must be no less than 34 inches from the walking and/or working surface and the highest point is no more than 39 inches from the walking and/or
- Stanchions, after being rigged with warning lines, must be capable of resisting, without 10 tipping over, a force of at least 16 pounds applied horizontally against the stanchion 30 inches above the walking and/or working surface perpendicular to the warning line and in the direction of the floor, roof, or platform edge.
- The rope, wire or chain must have a minimum tensile strength of 500 pounds and after being attached to the stanchions must support the load applied to the stanchions as prescribed.
- The warning line must be attached to each stanchion in such a way that pulling on one section of the line between stanchions will not result in slack being taken up in the adjacent section before the stanchion tips over.
- The line must be flagged at not more than 6-foot intervals with high-visibility material. Warning lines must be erected around all sides of a work area. When mechanical equipment is being used, the warning line must be erected no less than 6 feet from the roof edge parallel to the direction of mechanical equipment operation and no less than 10 feet from the roof edge perpendicular to the direction of mechanical equipment operation.
- When mechanical equipment is not being used, the warning line must be erected not less than 6 feet from the roof edge.
