In a recent article “The Pitfalls of Ignoring OSHA”, on Construct Connect, Mark Slater gives 3 talking points on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):
- Most Onsite Accidents Are Preventable
- Safety Culture
- Your OSHA Safety Strategy
Whether you are in construction or manufacturing OSHA provides basic standards for keeping workers, buildings and its occupants safe from slips, trips and falls. Mark Slater states that “There are many injuries and fatalities associated with construction even with all safety rules in place. Construction is second only to manufacturing when it comes to injuries that do not end up with a fatality.”
So how can Nystrom help?
First, it is important when working with a building product manufacturer that the products that are purchased and installed on your project fit the appropriate application. Nystrom’s sales staff, product managers and engineers can provide technical support and consultative sales to ensure that you get the right product for your application.
Additionally, Nystrom provides a variety of fall protection products including safety railings, guardrails and accessories to help prevent workplace falls. The guardrails can be fitted around any opening or rooftop edge while safety railings can be added to any roof hatch, smoke vent or floor door.
Lastly, when installing products, please make sure to read and install the products as directed in the Installation, Operation and Maintenance manuals, which are provided with each product. For products that require adhesive installation, please be sure to read and follow all safety precautions outlined in the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).
