Custom Anchors are a Fall Protection Must
Safety in the workplace is priority #1. Many workplace environments demand more than a standard fall arrest system. Tritech Fall Protection Systems’ specialists analyze, design and engineer unique safety solutions to meet the demands of unique hazards. Workers who feel safe, and know they are safe, work more efficiently, are more productive and stay loyal. One hidden benefit of ensuring comprehensive workplace safety, therefore, is that it reduces the need to recruit and train new hires.
The safety gear employees wear are only as good as the anchors to which they are attached. Custom anchors are essential for ease of use, maximum safety and optimum productivity. Tritech’s fully effective fall arrest systems are designed to allow for:
1. The type of work being done
2. The work environment in general
3. The structures in which, and on which, the work will be done
4. The material to which the anchors will be attached, and
5. The loads those anchors and attachments will be expected to bear
Tritech has pioneered the design of fall protection systems for a number of different industries. The basics of hazard protection may be similar, and the structures where work is done may be similar in several ways, but the specific activities associated with different lines of business demand additional attention to detail. Workers construct, load, unload, haul, service, paint, inspect, repair and carry out a variety of other tasks. They perform these tasks alone and as part of a team. They work undercover and out in the open. An effective fall protection system must, therefore, take each and every one of these factors into account. The system must deliver comprehensive protection against falling, and it must minimize the impact of a fall on both the person and the structure to which that person is attached.
In addition to the safety aspect of a fall protection system, the esthetics must also be taken into account. Many public buildings, advertising billboards and sports arenas, for example, must be visually attractive. Our customized solutions incorporate such details. Part of designing custom anchor solutions, when esthetics mater, is to make sure everything is either concealed from public view or is, at the very minimum, visually unobtrusive.
In addition to being fully functional, all of Tritech’s custom solutions are, at a minimum, fully OSHA and CSA compliant while also meeting all local legislative requirements.
