Guard & Safety Rail Systems
Employers know they need to ensure the safety for employees at all time. For walking or working sites or areas with an unprotected edge 4 feet or more above a lower level, employers must provide a guardrail system, personal fall protection gear, or a safety net system. Open dock doors meet the requirements (listed to the left) for a guardrail system – but make sure it’s also well designed, and easy to install and uninstall to ensure the required levels of safety.
