We get a few jobs per year where the owners are adamantly against the installation of handrails. It's their house, their life, their decision. I can't force them to have handrails.

So what I do is I insert a clause in the contract:
"Handrails / safety rails to be installed by others"

By stating "installed by others" takes all the liability and responsibility off my shoulders.

I realize this is more than the topic creator was seeking. But if you're building steps - the building codes, the liability, and the responsibility all fall on the same plate as the building.
