Fall Protection Systems for the Pulp and Paper Industry
Due to their harsh environments, pulp and paper mills require constant maintenance. Although preventative service is vital to keeping your mill operational, it also exposes maintenance personnel to a variety of safety and fall hazards. Ensuring worker safety and OSHA compliance requires the implementation of a comprehensive fall prevention strategy, which includes the proper mix of fall protection equipment, personnel training, and partnering with a fall protection company that appreciates the unique nature of your mill’s access points and potential fall hazards.
Creating an effective fall protection system for your pulp and paper mill begins with a site visit to better understand the work environment. By understanding the nature and frequency of tasks performed, fall clearance distances, and the strength of adjacent structural beams and columns, we can engineer a turnkey fall protection solution that maximizes productivity while keeping your employees safe and your mill in compliance with all OSHA regulations.
Remember, falls are the leading cause of occupational injuries and fatalities each year. What’s more, the OSHA fines and increased insurance premiums and workman’s compensation costs associated with one recordable event exceed the costs of even the most sophisticated, engineered fall protection system many times over.
