Where there is a ladder to a roof, I sometimes see a railing on either side of the ladder for a short distance along the edge of the roof. While I understand the "its a good idea" aspect of this practice, does anyone know of any specific requirement for this railing? I have seen it short (maybe 2') and I have seen it long (maybe 8'). 4' to 6' seems to be more common though. I have not seen anything in OSHA about this, but it might be covered in a different version of OSHA than the one I am looking at. Thanks in advance.
