What does “landing” mean in this context?

The manager shall assess the fall area for building infrastructure, (i.e.,
fire escapes, landings, access ladders) that could impede the fall path.

What does “landings” mean in this context? It seems to be a place for landing, but it’s still vague. What does it exactly refer to? I searched a dictionary, but the definition is just “a floor between two sets of stairs or at the top of a set of stairs”.

And I have one more question. How should “for” be interpreted? Does it mean that:

the manager shall assess the fall area “of” building infrastructure

or

the manager shall assess the fall area “regarding” the building
infrastructure (which means that the manager inspects the fall area,
and the inspection is about building infrastructure)

?

Answer

A building Landing is referring to something like what is pictured below:

Also, for can be interpreted as your latter statement:

the manager shall assess the fall area “regarding” the building infrastructure (which means that the manager inspects the fall area, and the inspection is about building infrastructure)
