Design, fabrication, and installation of engineered fall protection systems is a complex undertaking with many moving parts. Each stage in the development of an engineered system presents challenges that need to be handled with speed and competence to keep the project on track. Unlike most other fall protection companies, all of our jobs are coordinated from inception to completion by one of our professional project managers—not a sales person. In fact, Diversified Fall Protection has an entire team of professionals that work exclusively within our project management department. Project management is one of the cornerstones of our turnkey, single-source approach to fall protection.
Once our proposal is approved and your PO is in-house, our project managers keep close tabs on six main milestones and their corresponding deliverables:
- On-Site Engineering Review
- Engineering Design Layout
- Client Approval
- Fabrication and Materials Procurement
- Material Shipment to Site
- Installation and Training
Within each of these six milestones, we perform and document 65 steps to bring a project to successful completion. This level of detail ensures our clients understand what is happening at each stage of their project, and more importantly, it helps us identify potential problems before they become obstacles to success. From our in-house coordinators to our team of dedicated installers, every member of our project management team understands their role is mission critical. We are in the business of saving lives and take great pride in our work.
If you are actively seeking a new fall protection company to help with your safety challenges, be sure to ask if they have a dedicated project management department. Remember, bringing a new, engineered fall protection system online is a time consuming and complex process. Partnering with a company that dedicates staff to the active management of your fall protection project will ensure success.
