Safety truly is the most important thing in construction, especially on a roof. According to the U. S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls from the roof were responsible for 34% of all construction industry fall fatalities between 2003 and 2013. Add the thousands of fall-related injuries and it’s clear that anything you can do to help make your clients’ roofs safer places to work should be implemented.
WTC works with Fibergrate to provide high performance systems that help create a safe environment for people working at height. These include roof access ladders, parapet walls, platforms, roof edge handrails and over-piping walkways.
All equipment is easy to install and maintain; corrosion-, impact- and slip-resistant; non-conductive; and has a heavy strength-to-weight ratio.
Making buildings safer places to work is an unending mission, with roofs at or near the top of the list. WTC and Fibergrate can offer you invaluable expertise in designing and installing the right safety solutions for your specific needs.
