What are fall protection systems?
Fall protection equipment is used in the proactive effort to prevent and avoid injury when falling from an elevated position (above ground or the base surface). Fall protection systems and equipment are required and regulated by the Federal Government – specifically, the United States Department of Labor, with workplace safety being overseen and reviewed by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). OSHA defines fall protection as “any time a worker is at a height of four feet or more, the worker is at risk and needs to be protected.”
|How does it protect?||Prevents people from reaching the fall hazard by creating a barrier between the person and the fall hazard.|
|Individual Equipment Needed||None.|
|Inspection||After installation and annually.|
|Potential For Injury||None.|
|Burden to Laborer||Little to none.|
|OSHA Preference||Most preferred because there is the least risk.|
Fall Protection System Services
Each Safe Harbor custom modular loading rack and elevated platform system (and individual components) are designed to meet OSHA Regulations and Standards, specifically OSHA General Industry Fall Protection Standard 29 CFR 1910, including (but not limited to) OSHA 1910.23. This section deals with handrails, railings (including pipe railings, top railings, intermediate railings, stair railings), railing diameters, post spacing, handrail load specifications, stair railing heights, etc. Again, Safe Harbor adheres to all applicable OSHA requirements and regulations.

You, the customer, can be assured that Safe Harbor takes fall protection seriously – and this is reflected in the construction and assembly of every custom modular loading rack system. Railings, access ramps, stairs, gangways, posts, and safety enclosures are designed with fall protection in mind.
