How Guardrails Keep Your Facility Safe

Protect your people, your facility, and your bottom line.

Employers are required to provide a safe workplace, but warehouse injuries still happen. Private industry employers reported 2.1 million nonfatal injuries in 2020, down from 2.7 million in 2019 (according to statistics published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Nov 2021). Even with a decline from 2019 to 2020, injuries still happened at an alarming rate. In addition to worker safety, preventing equipment and facility damage is also top of the list for cost-conscious managers.

Many operations lose thousands of dollars per hour on downtime alone in addition to repair costs and rental fees. There are preventative measures you can take to protect your people, your facility, and your bottom line. Adding safety guardrails, pedestrian barriers, and bollards to your warehouse can help keep your people, equipment, and inventory safe. It’s also cost-effective.

Guardrail

  • Installing a guardrail system is simple and easy. Guardrails can help put a barrier between workers and equipment that runs thru your warehouse. It can also protect your inventory from an unintended mishap of equipment handling failure.
  • Heavy-duty guardrail installation around machinery can help keep workers at bay as machinery does the job it is intended to do. Keep traffic in your warehouse moving on the right track with a guardrail system.

Pedestrian Barriers

  • Putting up a highly visible pedestrian barrier makes it easy to identify a safe pathway for your employees, visitors, and customers.  Keeping workers and pedestrians away from dangerous areas of your facility is a cost-effective solution with pedestrian barriers. Create your own custom layout with this easy modular barrier.

Bollards

  • Inside and outdoor protection can be achieved with bollards. Protect your assets from collision damage whether it is your building structure, utilities, working environment, and much more. Bollards are a durable way to absorb impact and create safety in your facility.

Warehouse solutions such as guardrails, pedestrian barriers, and bollards help you achieve the safety of the people in your workplace, protection of your facility from damage, and a good bottom line.
