Falls are among the leading causes of workplace injury and death each year. With more than 7,700 cases in 2018 alone, OSHA consistently cites more companies for fall protection violations than any other issue.
Safeline-FP provides a wide array of fall protection solutions for the construction industry, such as personnel safety and debris netting systems, temporary handrail and lifeline anchor solutions. Our services also include custom fabrication design, engineering and installation services for those projects that require more than an off-the-shelf solution.
The United States infrastructure and our “crumbling” roads, bridges and tunnels, in particular, have been in the national consciousness for several years now and unfortunately it has reached a critical point.
According to the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), the number of structurally deficient bridges in the US in 2018, if placed end-to-end, would stretch 1,216 miles – the distance between Miami, Florida and New York City.
Safeline-FP debris nets for bridge debris containment are designed to surround a bridge undergoing work, to protect pedestrians, workers, vehicles, and nearby properties from falling debris. They are also ideal for instances where debris may be falling into rivers and streams from older bridges that are scheduled for repair. Not only do the nets make clean up safer and minimize liabilities, but they also address Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.
The manufacturing environment can be one of the most dangerous places to work. Various types of machinery create a variety of workplace hazards.
Providing a safe production environment for workers and maintenance staff in the industrial sector requires the implementation of a comprehensive fall prevention strategy, which includes the proper mix of fall protection equipment, personnel training, and partnering with a fall protection company that appreciates the unique nature of your facilities access points and potential fall hazards.
Due to the broad nature of the general industrial and machine maintenance sector, fall protection system designs can include horizontal lifeline systems, rigid track systems, rigid beam systems, catwalks/mezzanine decks and/or a combination of multiple systems. Understanding the unique nature of both your production facility’s access points and fall hazards combined with a turnkey approach to OSHA compliant fall protection system will keep your plant and personnel safe.
