Roof Access and Fall Protection Systems
Maximum Safety. Minimum Fuss.
In the construction industry, falls account for a high percentage of injuries and deaths. While no construction site wants to be the location of an accident, the chances increase any time individuals work on a roof.
Even under the right conditions, any rooftop or construction work is dangerous due to the high elevation, slopes and roof edges. On top of this, specific rooftop hazards can further increase the chances of a fall. These hazards include extreme temperatures and wet surfaces, plus the use of electricity, hazardous substances and power tools. Misusing equipment like ladders can also lead to a serious injury.
Any time your job site has people working on a roof, their safety and protection need to be prioritized. Any fall hazards need to be identified and eliminated to ensure employees are protected. Those overseeing and working on the site must have a clear, actionable plan to make sure they can complete the project safely.
Equipment ranging from safety gear to ladders needs to be provided and maintained, and employees should receive thorough training on how to use gear and machinery safely and effectively.
How can we help you?
Maximum Safety. Minimum Fuss.
Here at FIXFAST USA, our extensive range of safe access products and fall protection systems are primarily designed for rooftop applications. We understand that the roof environment is dangerous and workers are exposed to multiple fall hazards. The rooftop is often considered as out of sight, out of mind. We aim to reverse this theory through education and simplicity. Our goal is to ensure that any worker subjected to working on roofs has maximum safety with minimum fuss.
You can incorporate several rooftop fall protection systems to make the job site safer. These include:
- Roof fall protection railing: Adding guardrails or railing in hazardous locations can add a protective barrier on the rooftop.
- Roof fall restraint systems: Incorporating restraint systems with either anchor points or lifeline devices can help keep employees safe as they work along the roof’s edge.
- Fall arrest equipment: For jobs where employees need to work close to the edge of the roof, fall arrest equipment ensures they’ll be caught and stay safe if they slide or fall.
Whichever one of these fall protection roof work systems your construction site requires, you can experience peace of mind knowing our equipment is based on standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). You can easily develop a protection plan that accounts for these safety and health standards. Overall, you’ll find that our trusted solutions will allow your employees to get the job done while limiting the chances of serious injuries and falls.
