OSHA guidelines for handrails and stair rails are critical in reducing the potential risk of falls and slip injuries. Handrails and stair rails are similar but provide different functions to prevent falls or injuries. A handrail is required when a stairway has four or more risers. The handrail is meant to be grasped to steady oneself to avoid slipping or falling on a stairway but is not intended to withstand a person’s full weight. Basically, a handrail gives you something to hold on to. A stair rail prevents someone from falling off the sides of stairs. The stair rail acts as a guard and is installed along the side of the stair well on the outside of the handrail and is larger than the handrail.

Handrails and stair rails are a critical safety feature on outdoor and indoor stairs. These rails are an integral part to protect a person from a fall on stairs. Even thought OSHA standards have been set for handrails and stair rails, the final authority rests on local building codes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
