Preventing a Fall with Proper Guardrail and Handrail Installation & Rentals

Fall protection for industrial workers is a mandatory requirement by the government. Whenever you have workers working at a height of four feet or more, you need to provide the necessary fall protection systems to prevent falls or limit damage in case of an incident.

Safety railing systems are an important part of these fall protection systems. You are required to install a railing system that is 42” tall from the working/walking surface, with at least one more rail between the top rail and the walking/working surface. The rails must be able to withstand 200lbs of force and a toe board is needed if workers are likely to walk underneath the area during work.

Rail System Installation Services

There are specific guidelines governing the installation of guardrail and handrail systems in Canada. For instance, plastic banding and steel banding are not allowed for top rails or mid rails. Also, the end of the top rails and mid rails must not overhang the terminal posts, except where the overhang doesn’t pose a projection hazard for workers. These are just a few of the regulations. Breaking any of these rules can cause unforeseen accidents resulting in injuries and potentially lawsuits.
