Like most large cities in the United States, Chicago, Illinois has some specific requirements for rooftop fall protection. Office buildings and warehouses are not the only ones requiring fall safety protection, rooftop decks have been and continue to be an icon in Chicago neighborhoods, which will now require improved fall protection.
Understanding and meeting those requirements can seem overwhelming, but we are here to help. Illinois developed their own extension of OSHA in 2009 as part of their Illinois Department of Labor, and the program covers state and local government workers. As of October 19, 2015, all public sector employers fall under Illinois OSHA’s jurisdiction. As of January 1, 2015, all private sector employers must follow Federal OHSA’s jurisdiction.
We want to partner with you and help you understand exactly what fall protection requirements you need to meet and the best methods for implementing fall protection solutions.
When operating in a large city like Chicago, you will need to meet federal OSHA requirements as well as the local building code. To help you, we’ve outlined the most important federal and local Chicago requirements for fall protection systems in Chicago.
We pride ourselves on not being "just another company trying to sell you something". We take safety seriously and we want to partner with you to make sure you receive the right fall protection solution that meets compliance requirements, protects your workers while they work at height, and reduces liability for your company.
