Section 14.8.3 addresses walkways elevated 48 in. (1.2 m) or more above the adjacent floor or ground level that shall be protected by fall protection systems. The purpose of this ballot is to address confusion regarding the requirements for fall protection for guests in evacuation and station areas, specifically regarding the 12” sphere comment. This reiterates the requirement for an analysis to be conducted to determine the allowable size of an unprotected gap based on the smallest allowed patron for the amusement ride or device. A concurrent ballot is currently open to address section X 10 OTHER ACCEPTABLE FALL PROTECTION CONFIGURATIONS.
