Ballasted warning line (control zone or bump line) provide a 2 meter buffer from edge of roof inwards allowing safe work by maintenance crews. Our warning line systems meet or exceed all governmental regulations including but not limited to ANSI, OSHA, WorkSafeBC, OHS Alberta, OHS Saskatchewan, Workplace Health & Safety Manitoba
Warning lines prevent falls by alerting workers to fall hazards. Warning lines should be set up around the work area at least 2 meters (6 feet 6 inches) from unprotected edges.
When a work area is enclosed by properly installed and maintained warning line, work inside the safe area can be done without additional fall protection measures. Anyone outside of the safe area and is working less than 2 metres from the edge must use approved fall protection.
