Case Study: OSHA Compliant Skylight Fall Protection, January 2019
Location: Embassy Suites Hotel, 300 Baymeadows Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32256 277 rooms, 7 stories
Problem Statement: Two vaulted skylights located on the roof of the reception area did not have fall protection. OSHA mandates that all skylights are protected to ensure safe working conditions on the roof. Each skylight measured 77’ x 26’.
Problem Resolution: NextGen Roof Solutions® performed a site visit and determined that the best solution to satisfy OSHA and protect workers was to install the free-standing NextGen 3000® Railing System. The railing consisted of 44 bases and 40 sections installed around the perimeter of each skylight. NextGen’s price was 40% less than every other bid and the installation was completed in one day with no tools or cranes.
