Crossing Excavations

Walkways shall be provided where employees or equipment are required or permitted to cross over excavations that are greater the 6 foot deep. This is highly recommended for all cross overs.
Guardrails must meet the same standards we use for all other guardrails:
  • Meet the 200 lb rating in all directions
  • 42 Inches (+/- 3 inches) Top Rail height
  • Mid-rail half-way between the working surface and the top rail
  • Toe board installed

** Note that the toe board is not installed because no one is working beneath this nor is the excavation 6 foot deep.
