The use of cable guards/cable protectors and dropovers present unique issues when attempting to create safe paths of travel. OSHA and ADA guidelines as well as the NEC (National Electrical Code) have unique attributes that you’ll need to familiarize yourself with as they relate to your application. Local fire marshalls usually have the final say when it comes to compliance at an event. Strict adherence to all available guidelines will help you to insure that your event goes off without a hitch and the public is safe throughout.
