Side protection

Side protection (edge protection) is used on construction sites to secure potentially dangerous edges in order to prevent work accidents. This side protection may be made of wood but could also consist of a guard rail manufactured from steel or aluminium. Basically, your side protection structure must have a top bar, a middle bar and a toe bar. In the case of a guard rail, these are accordingly referred to as the hand rail, knee rail and toe board. The top edge of the side protection structure should be at least 100 cm above the surface on which it has been installed. The distance between the top and middle bars, resp. between the middle bar and the toe bar should not exceed 47 cm.

Side protection belongs to the category of collective protection measures and, where possible, should be given preference over individual protection measures.
