California trigger height is reduced

In response to a 2004 petition by the California Professional Association of Specialty Contractors (CALPASC), California has reduced the 20-foot trigger height for residential roofing applications to a 15-foot trigger height.

CALPASC's petition argued the change would minimize accidents and insurance costs and make it easier for contractors to bid on jobs. With the 15-foot trigger height, the cost of fall protection for roofing contractors will be included in bids for jobs involving two-story residential construction in California.
