Ladder Safety Systems are Critical and Compliant Fall Protection
Climbing a ladder is a task often taken for granted, a single slip or a missed rung could result in a life-threatening fall. Ladder safety doesn’t stop at the top, in fact; the transition to the walking-working surface is one of the most dangerous fall hazards.
- Ensure your workers are safe and your company is OSHA compliant with a safe ladder system.
- Prevent falls while climbing a fixed ladder and safely access the walking-working surface.
- One fixed ladder or multiple sections, safety ladder systems are fully customizable to meet your safety needs.
At Simplified Safety, we're committed to providing a safe solution from the bottom of the ladder to the top of the walking-working surface.
Three Parts of a Complete
Ladder Fall Protection System:
Vertical Ladder Lifelines
Vertical lifelines are a comprehensive solution to ensure your team is secure while climbing fixed ladders. Vertical lifelines systems include a stainless steel cable, a track, and a full-body harness attached to a fixed ladder.
A safety gate provides a safe barrier for fixed ladders and access points to a walking-working surface. Safety Gates are easy to install and come in a variety of styles and finishes, such as galvanizes, aluminum and stainless steel.
Fall protection guardrail along the walking-working surface can complete your ladder safety system. A guardrail system provides a barrier to the roof's edge and the peace of mind your workers are protected.
Is Your Ladder OSHA Compliant?
Updated OSHA Regulations for Walking-Working Surfaces
In 2017 OSHA updated its regulations for walking-working surfaces to protect workers better while climbing fixed ladders. Ladder cages are no longer a compliant application for fall protection.
- Cages installed before November 19, 2018, are allowed; however, replacement sections will require a safety ladder system or vertical lifeline.
- Fixed Ladders above 24 feet, installed after November 19, 2018, will require a safety ladder system.
- Any existing cage by November 19, 2036, must include a safety ladder system.
