My geodome is completed, and packed. I just read through the latest JRS on health and safety and there is a bit of discussion regarding platforms, railings, etc.
So... my dome is a 24 footer 4/9 3V, and I built a small platform on the top pentagon. The platform has no railings, it's just a flat platform, 11 feet off the ground. Now, I've been concerned since I built it that I would have unwanted climbing of my dome, bending of my struts (if you're not careful, they do bend), and unwanted occupants on my platform. Should someone fall and hurt themselves, I'd worry about being at fault, and so on.
Does anyone have thoughts on this? I considered "no climbing" signs, or "please keep off" signs on the platform, but I didn't want to spoil the whole structure with "please don't" signs. I also want to cover my ass though - I don't know the legalities, but if someone climbs up my jungle-gym looking tent thing and hurts themselves, I'd not only feel bad, but I'd really hate to be liable for their injuries.
Should I just leave the platform at home?
We wouldn't want to alarm the flock, they might start asking questions.
