Excerpt from "Rollover protective structures are required for earthmoving "dumpers."[1926.602(a)(1); 1926.602(a)(6)]"
Under the OSHA construction standard pertaining to material handling equipment, equipment covered by 29 CFR 1926.602(a) (earthmoving equipment), must have ROPS. Section 1926.602(a)(6) requires such equipment to have ROPS in accordance with the requirements in 1926 subpart W (1926.1000 - 1003), because the uneven surfaces that are typical of construction sites pose a danger of roll - over.
