    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.51 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    To develop a standard for the purpose of establishing fall resistance criteria and a test method that will simulate falls of persons onto unit skylights and related products installed onto low-slope roofs. A consensus based upon standard practices, standard impact test methods, materials commonly used, and risk assessment will be the basis for developing this human fall resistance specification and test method. Exploration of meaningful certification and/or labeling will be examined.


    Fall hazard, roofs, NIOSH Hazard Alert, fragile roofs, metal building skylights, plastic bubble skylights, dome skylights, corrugated fiberglass skylights, roof lighting, glass skylights, skylight signage, fall hazard warnings, dangerous roof openings

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
