Today’s Fixed-it Friday photos come with some questions…is there a way to make this opening code-compliant?  It’s obviously not an egress door, but how can building occupants be protected from falling?  Are the signage and chain enough?  I checked the section of the IBC that addresses guards, but I didn’t see something specific to this application.  Has anyone dealt with this type of situation?  It reminded me of this old Wordless Wednesday post, except the drop there was 8 FLOORS!

P.S. I’m sure you’ll notice, there are a few fire door issues too.
