When it comes to safety on the job, there are more than just policies and procedures to consider. Regular safety training, inspections and proper management also play a part in a cohesive safety plan, not to mention the safety equipment you use (and how you use it).
When looking at the leading causes of injuries and fatalities on the job, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has identified four leading causes of death in the construction industry; the “Fatal Four” include falls, struck by an object, electrocutions, and caught in or between. Year after year falls take the #1 spot and are considered the leading cause of construction deaths. For this reason, fall protection is essential to every crew – From proper training to high-quality equipment, roofing and construction professionals must take preventative measures to ensure that all crew members are safe and protected on the job.
This is where the Falcon Safety Cart comes into the picture. The Falcon Safety Cart is a mobile fall protection system built with a lightweight frame designed for easy transport between job sites. At 450 pounds, it is the lightest cart on the market; it is also the only fall protection cart on the market that has a patented feature that includes a built-in shock pack which reduces fall arrest to 740 pounds of force, exceeding OSHA standards. It offers a convenient three-man tie-off with quick & easy assembly/disassembly and drop pins for multi-level roof systems.
As for mobility, the Falcon Safety Cart offers a unique and compact design that disassembles, allowing it to effortlessly fit in a truck. On the job, it offers quick and easy movement along multiple roof systems. The Falcon Safety Cart not only meets but exceeds OSHA requirements.
The Cart’s proof of success goes beyond success on the job site. The product has been rigorously tested by a third-party. The report details the testing and functionality of the On Top Safety Falcon Fall Protection Cart, and several tests were performed to verify that it will adequately arrest a fall. The manufacturer designed the cart to comply with 29 CFR 1926.502, Fall Protection systems criteria.
