Plaintiff is therefore unable to establish that a safety railing would have been required by section 1621 at the location where he fell. Since he cannot prove a causal relationship between his injuries and Defendant's asserted omission to perform a nondelegable duty, Plaintiff cannot avoid summary judgment.
