All materials chutes or sections thereof, at an angle of more than 45 deg. from the horizontal, shall be entirely enclosed, except for openings equipped with closures at or about floor level for the insertion of materials. The openings shall not exceed 48 inches in height measured along the wall of the chute. At all stories below the top floor, such openings shall be kept closed when not in use.

When operations are not in progress, the area surrounding the discharge end of a chute shall be securely closed off. See OSHA Perimeter Chute Protection Regulations
