The Problem With Uncovered Holes

It’s easy to assume that the person who drilled or cut the opening will notify employees in the area. Construction sites are commonly noisy, busy areas — making communication difficult. Well, can’t workers see that there’s a hole? Not when they are carrying loads or focused on something else.

Injuries Can Result From Openings Of Any Size

Larger openings in roofing, work platforms, and floors can be a fall hazard to workers performing tasks in the area. Even smaller holes can easily be overlooked and catch a work boot. Sticking up some caution tape or covering openings with cardboard isn’t enough.

To prevent injuries, you should be aware of openings inside the buildings you are constructing, in the workshops or warehouses your employees frequent, outdoor drains and chutes, on decks and working platforms in use, and on roofs.

OSHA Compliance Requires Covers

OSHA Standard 1910.28 states that employees are to be protected from tripping or stepping into or through any hole less than 4 feet above a lower level by covers or guardrail systems. The cover must support at least a 200-lb. load, be larger than the opening, secured against displacement, and labeled.
