OS3 Safety in Use



Intent 1:

To clarify that the top rail of a guard is permitted to serve as a handrail if certain conditions are met.

This is to limit the probability that persons using the fire escape in an emergency situation will lose hold of the guard, which could lead to persons tripping or falling, which could lead to:

  • delays in the evacuation or movement of persons to a safe place, which could lead to harm to persons, and
  • harm to persons.
