OSHA Snow Removal Guide

OSHA, realizing that snow on rooftops and other elevated surfaces create a whole set of hazards that need to be addressed, has put together a 7 page document entitled “Falls and Other Hazards to Workers Removing Snowfrom Rooftops and Other Elevated Surfaces.


The document covers fall protection for worker on roofs as well as a number of other options that don’t require workers to have to climb on the roof at all.

You can download the document on the OSHA website here.
