In 2011, the private construction industry experienced 721 fatal work injuries, of which 254 were caused by falls. Injuries like these could have been prevented by renting our RailGuard railing system.
In recent OSHA reports, nearly 90 percent of fatal falls happen when no fall protection system is in place. Other falls occur when fall protection systems are used improperly. Proper use of PFA systems, securing ladders, observing correct procedures for scaffold setup, and guarding and covering skylights and other roof holes are essential elements of a safe work environment that reduces fall exposures. A separate OSHA study involving 99 fall related fatalities found that all of the deaths could have been prevented by the use of guard rails, PFA systems, safety nets, covers, or other means to reduce employee exposure to the hazard.
