OSHA considers a rooftop skylight to be a hole in the roof surface. A skylight that is accidentally stepped on or fallen into can break and cause a fall from a fatal height. If skylights are in the vicinity of any work area or walking surface, they must
be protected with the appropriate fall protection screens or guardrail.
