For permanent ladders as of 2017 OSHA updated standard requirements for fall protection on a ladder, to no longer allow cages as means of fall protection. All fixed ladders more 24ft in height require fall protection. Existing cages must be removed by 2036. Examples of fall protection for ladders include Vertical Lifelines and Ladder Davit Systems. If a cage remains on the ladder it must not interfere with the performance of the fall protection system.
