AS/NZS4994 | Mechanical performance evaluation of ladders, racks, scaffolds and supports | NATA | Scaffold Planks

This Standard specifies requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of equipment that is intended to provide temporary edge protection for persons working on roofs of buildings having slopes not greater than 35° to the horizontal and for other exposed edges, prior to the installation of the permanent walling materials.

Notes:
1. This Standard does not apply to the containment of materials on residential roofs.

2. Edge protection is used on buildings that are being constructed, renovated, extended, altered or maintained.

3. Where roof slopes exceed 35 degrees, roof edge protection should be specifically designed. In some instances it may be appropriate that some other form of restraint may be required to avoid risk of excessive impact.

4. AS/NZS 4494.2 specifies requirements for the installation and dismantling of roof edge protection.

5. AS/NZS 4494.3 specifies requirements for the installation and dismantling of edge protection of other edges prior to the installation of the permanent walling materials.
