Safety measures in the workplace are among the most important things to both business owners and employees alike.
While workplace safety is something easily controllable, many business owners don’t give it the same amount of attention as other aspects of their business.
Edge and rooftop safety, in particular, should be at the forefront of every individual working in a construction-related industry. In 2017 alone, 39.2 percent of the total deaths in construction were due to fatal falls – an inexcusable statistic. OSHA also lists fall protection in construction as the number one most frequently cited violation in their inspections.
Industrial Safety Gates in Fall Protection
In general industry, fall protection is required at a height of four feet above a lower level.
In construction, this requirement slightly changes. Fall protection is required at six feet above a lower level, and is required at ten feet when it comes to scaffolding.
Ideally, anywhere someone can take a spill and severely injure themselves should require at least some form of fall protection.
In the past, employee safety on mezzanines, rooftops and edges has required at LEAST one of the following: Pneumatic/Electric/Hydraulic operation of a gate, personnel on the mezzanine to open/close a pivot or sliding gate, or creating a temporary opening in the mezzanine for material flow.
If all of these solutions sound like a hassle, it’s because they are. Hydraulic and electric operation of a gate will increase your costs across the board, and hiring personnel to patrol the area will cost the same, if not more!
And really, who wants to purposefully damage their surface to create a temporary opening?
If you’re ready to take your workplace safety seriously, then we’re ready to help. EDGE provides rooftop and edge safety precautions to businesses of all sizes, and the EDGE E3 Industrial Safety Gate is one of our most popular solutions.
