Live Edge Protection (LEP) 

Wherever anyone could fall, the first line of defence is to provide adequate edge protection to prevent a fall occurring. This should be equivalent to:

  • a main guard rail at least 950 mm above the edge
  • a toe board where there is risk of objects being kicked off the edge of the platform
  • a suitable number of intermediate guard rails or suitable alternatives positioned so that there is no gap more than 470 mm.
