Benefits of Spending Remaining EHS Budget for Roof Safety Railing

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Extra remaining funds at the end of a fiscal or calendar budget cycle is a great problem to have. But it is still just that – a problem. If your EHS department has a “use-it-or-lose-it” budget, you may be scrambling to spend it before the quarter ends.

This can be a double-edged sword…you don’t want money to go to waste, but you may also be having a hard time coming up with a way to invest this money into a meaningful project that can be completed within your budget cycle.

OSHA’s most recently released “top 10” list of most frequently cited workplace violations in 2019 again had Fall Protection topping the list once again. Falls from roof level – even a relatively low roof can be fatal

Workers who need to access a roof to perform a job are at risk twice – each time those workers enter and exit the roof to work. Diversified Fall Protection’s OSHA compliant roof guardrail – Lorguard – is a simple, affordable and extremely flexible way to stop workers from reaching an unprotected roof edge.

Lorguard’s detachable, weighted base does not penetrate the roof surface; our roof guardrail can be moved and repositioned over and over without ever harming or penetrating the roof surface.

Stocked in the following configurations and shiped directly to you from the manufacturer, our roof safety railings are an ideal way to successfully use budget allocations at the end of a cycle.

  • 6’ Safety Yellow
  • 8’ Safety Yellow
  • 10’ Safety Yellow
  • Galvanized Base Plates
  • Splice Kits to Connect Cut Sections
  • Safety Swing Gates
