Skylights are a wonderful way to bring more natural light into your building. When it comes to safety, though, skylights can pose a serious threat. That's why OSHA outlines specific requirements that need to be followed in order to ensure that the skylights on your roof don't expose workers to unnecessary risks. According to Code of Federal Regulations 1910.23(a)(4), "Every skylight floor opening and hole shall be guarded by a standard skylight screen or a fixed standard railing on all exposed sides." That means you are required to have a skylight guardrail on your skylights before workers can get up on your roof.
