Guardrails as Anchorage Points

Do not use guardrails as anchorage points for fall arrest equipment unless a structural engineer approves them for that specific purpose.  There must be an engineering drawing that indicates which specific locations are suitable as anchorage points; what equipment, by rating, may be used; and how that equipment is to be attached.  Anchorage points should be labeled as such.
