OIL & GAS OFFSHORE PLATFORM ACCESS
From huge swells to heavy rains, the oil and gas industry regularly encounters hazardous environments at sea. Create a safe working environment for seafarers and crewmembers abroad your vessel or offshore structure with Safe Harbor.
We are a leading manufacturer of custom access and safety solutions for marine applications. Our extensive range of Occupational Safety and Health Administration-complaint gangways, ramps, bridges, and ladders optimize at-sea platform operational performance, safety, and environmental sustainability.
Why Do You Need Access Systems For Oil & Gas Offshore Platforms?
Offshore platforms are essentially floating cities where complex drilling operations extract natural resources like crude oil or natural gas from deep-sea environments. These are high-risk processes that operate at extreme temperatures and pressures. Additional dangers include:
- Confined spaces
- Slip-and-fall hazards
- Extreme weather
- Restricted access
- Overboard accidents
Marine Access Systems allow for safe loading & unloading of offshore platforms. There are several measures that companies can put in place with Safe Harbor's equipment.

Offshore Platform Gangway Features
Stability and flexibility are critical to the success of any maritime application. Features of our marine access systems include:
- Adjust to changes in tide and offshore structure or vessel levels
- Custom load capacities
- Custom widths and lengths
- Self-leveling treads for gangways and ramps
- Floating, pivot, and track mounting options
Simple and efficient regulation of marine access systems is critical to on-the-job performance. Safe Harbor can provide manual, hydraulic, and pneumatic controls.
Custom Marine Access Systems
At Safe Harbor, we know one-size-fits-all doesn’t always apply to offshore structures. Given a particular application’s unique requirements, a custom access solution is often the preferred option.
We have years of experience designing and manufacturing custom marine access equipment. Our knowledgeable team develops high-performance, long-lasting solutions using a proven consultative approach aimed at successfully addressing safety, productivity, ergonomics, and OSHA compliance. Offshore operations that benefit from our custom fabrication services include:
- Oil and gas
- Chemicals processing
- Renewable energy
- Maritime vessel refueling stations
- Electricity generation
- Water desalination
- Marine conservation
Offshore platforms are often in isolated environments, and equipment failure can be catastrophic. That’s why Safe Harbor constructs access systems for marine applications from high-quality aluminum, which has a variety of beneficial performance characteristics.
- Resists corrosion
- High strength-to-weight ratio
- Easy to fabricate
OSHA Certified Offshore Platform Gangways
Because offshore platforms are typically located a great distance away from land and extend deep into the depths of the ocean, operational safety and performance are paramount. Improve your at-sea application with Safe Harbor.
Whether you need an offshore service vessel gangway or an offshore telescopic gangway, we have you covered. Our marine products meet OSHA standards. Custom options are available when operating environments require heightened performance characteristics.
