Safety railings need to be sturdy, but they also need to be easy to put together and take apart. The OSHA-compliant Safety Boot is a brace that anchors to the floor and supports a doubled-up 2x4 post. It has slots for removable toeboards and is designed to be freestanding, so it only needs to be fastened to the floor.
