If you are a Safety Manager in an industrial setting, you know that there is nothing more vexing than seeing a worker crossing over an obstacle or ducking under a production line to get to another area. Workers taking shortcuts is an age-old problem and one that OSHA looks at with a cautious eye, for a good reason. Slips, accidental falls, and injuries frequently happen around ground-level obstacles that should have a designated safe crossover point. Crossover Stairs is the perfect solution.
Compliance with OSHA and thinking like an inspector is part of the job of an excellent facility or plant manager and seeing these crossover areas, then acting on them to reduce a hazard is a smart practice that adds layers of injury protection for your workers and peace of mind when thinking about that next inspection.
Watch your workers and see where the trouble spots are.
Is there a horizontal pipe or electrical conduit that crosses an area of your plant’s deck? Are workers always stepping over it instead of going to a designated crossover point? An ErectaStep installation can solve that problem in a matter of hours.
