Question: What’s the primary purpose of a fall protection system?
Answer: To protect at-height workers, right?
Answering the question may be simple, but choosing the best protection for your workers takes a little more thought.
When searching for fall protection, the goal is to find the right solutions at the right price and to get them installed with as little disruption as possible to the normal work day.
But a lot more thought and planning goes into creating a top-notch safety system than simply installing the components on a building. Pre-installation preparation, properly-trained installers and workers, and regular inspections are all part of a safe and successful workplace.
This stage often begins when you, as a potential customer, contact TC Safety and explain the need for safety equipment for your particular application. A safety specialist will discuss various options and alternatives with you and give you the advantages and disadvantages of each system or piece of equipment.
