Safety Fall Protection

Fall Protection

With the design of more than 400 Fall Protection solutions per year, our licensed professional engineers and inspectors are qualified to effectively handle your Fall Protection needs. We use a Fall Hazard Elimination methodology to successfully assist in the management of risks and the control of losses that result from falls in the workplace.

Our Fall Hazard Elimination Program consists of three steps: eliminate, prevent, arrest. Our staff has the experience and creativity to actively identify and correct (or avoid) at-height hazardous working conditions. When elimination is not possible, we have the expertise to assist our customers in the prevention of falls through passive-restraint systems, which may involve the cost effective installation of compliant access systems (ladders, stairs, guarded platforms), and the development of fall arrest systems to minimize injury in the event of a fall. Whether by use of custom-designed systems or incorporation of proprietary systems, our employees have the experience and qualifications required to design, specify, inspect, certify, and re-certify fall arrest systems.

  • Licensed professional engineers and inspectors
