In looking at OSHA letters of interpretation on their web site, I saw a letter which indicated that railings at platforms would be permitted to have lighting stands mounted to them, in relation to a question on railing clearances. But I have always had another concern regarding attaching light posts/stanchions to guardrail protection: on an exterior guardrail, it seems that the "flagpole" light would induce lateral wind load on the railing which may not have been accounted for in design - and would reduce the available strength for support of personnel leaning against it. Any other opinions on the acceptability of attaching light posts to OSHA or UBC required guardrails at platforms?
