What is a Skylight? Skylight: A structure used to bring light in through the roof. Skylights can be ventilating or fixed. Fixed skylights cannot open. Ventilating skylights may be opened. Tubular skylights are very small and used in spaces where full sized skylights cannot be used. Corrugated fiberglass panels are translucent panels imbedded in the roof.

Danger of Skylights Skylights pose a threat during construction and during maintenance of the skylight. Skylights can be dangerous to workers below the skylight. If there is a skylight opening, trash and debris might be thrown into the opening, injuring a worker below. There is also a danger when heavy objects or workers are placed on closed skylights. The skylight may break and the object or person may fall on the worker below.

Danger of Skylights Skylights are also dangerous to workers on the roof. Workers can trip on skylights and fall through. A worker may rest on the skylight causing it to break, thus falling through. Workers can also fall into the skylight openings.
