  • Fall Protection Safety Gates – Industrial Safety Gate Installation: Self-Closing Swing and Fixed Ladder
    either powder coating or galvanization Gates Provide OSHA Compliant Fall Protection In A Variety of Ways Employee injuries or death can be avoided in your commercial industrial construction or manufacturing workplace and meet OSHA compliance by implementing any or all of the following solutions Rooftops All access points to a roof should be protected with a self closing gate They include ladder openings either through a roof hatch or exterior mounted fixed ladders and caged ladders stairs that do not terminate with a door entrance to the roof catwalk or other walkway access and transition points to a different level roof This is not only required by OSHA it is common sense Far too many deaths have occurred when workers absorbed in their tasks backed into an unprotected opening Unfortunately many older buildings were built before OSHA regulations were developed and were constructed with a safety policy that was in effect worker beware Substantially all of these buildings need modification to bring them into OSHA compliance During our site surveys we work with our customer to identify and prioritize all fall hazards and develop a program that will protect workers from injury or death and protect the company from expensive fines Loading Docks Unprotected loading dock edges are one of the most common fall hazards we come across Because the most common height is only 48 to 52 they do not appear dangerous to the untrained eye and are often overlooked as a potential OSHA violation The OSHA general industry standard that a worker be protected from falling whenever they are 4 feet or higher that the next level was developed because that is the fall distance where death or serious injury can occur Dock gates are an easy to install cost effective form of OSHA compliant fall protection They are available in standard sizes that fit most openings and manufactured to open either horizontally or vertically Once installed they are easy to open when needed and locked into place when no loading activity is taking place Catwalks Existing catwalks can be retrofitted with guardrail systems that mount to the top or side of the walkway providing adequate fall protection in most situations The exceptions would be where a worker has to move away from the catwalk to access a particular piece of equipment and where pipe racks theater rigging or other obstructions make guardrail installation physically impossible In either of these situations a fall arrest system would need to be installed Gates should be used at all access points and elevation changes to provide protection against trips and falls Mezzanines Mezzanine edges can be protected with a combination of guardrail where no edge access is needed and safety gates available in either single or double pallet widths where access is needed for material movement Different gate styles allow the gates to be opened either horizontally or vertically and allow for either manual or automated action Work Platforms Work platforms come in many different forms from a simple rolling stair
