Skylights present a danger for any individual on the rooftop. We’ll help you guard every skylight opening and roof hole with a standard skylight screen or a standard railing on all exposed sides.
Openings are often overlooked, but extremely critical to protect. A worker moving across the middle of the roof has a false sense of security when working far from the roof edge. If workers are carrying equipment, or focused on the job at hand, it is easy to misstep and fall through an opening. We’ll work closely with you to complete a fall protection assessment so you can ensure everyone is as safe as possible.
Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, requires that each employer furnish to each of its employees a workplace that is free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm.OSHA General Duty Clause

A truly comprehensive rooftop solution follows the Hierarchy of Fall Protection. An expert starts by inspecting the roof site for potential fall hazards. From there, a complete system solution and recommendations are created that descend down the four levels of the hierarchy, from simple, sensible approaches for eliminating risks all the way down to lifesaving personal protection systems.
Collective Systems require no additional training to use. Work Restraint and Fall Arrest Systems both require a high level of user competency, training and additional inspection to be used properly.
