Proper Safety Precautions WILL Save Money & Lives

Hero Banner

Safety is a Job Everyone Needs to Take Seriously

While working at heights, it is very important to take the proper safety precautions & to use the correct fall protection equipment each and every time. No matter the size of the job, safety should never take a back seat.

Recently the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Northridge Construction Corp. for failing to provide proper fall protection & protective helmets, ensuring the structural integrity of a roof and the misuse of a ladder. The company now potentially faces $224,620 in penalties.

These potential penalties are the result of an employee suffering fatal injuries after a structure collapsed during the installation of roof panels on a shed. This unfortunate event could have easily been avoided if the proper safety precautions were taken and if the employee was provided the proper fall protection equipment.

“Fall-related fatalities are preventable if employers use required fall protection systems, such as guardrails or personal fall arrest systems. OSHA standards are legal requirements that every employer must follow to ensure workers are protected from serious injuries.” – OSHA Long Island Area Director Anthony Ciuffo.

New ANSI/ISEA 121-2018 Dropped Objects Standard Published

Cause of Fatal Work InjuriesGet Informed & Save Lives

For years now the leading causes of death on construction jobsites has been “Fall” & ” Stuck by Object” cases, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). With more than 50,000 “struck by falling object” OSHA recordable incidents every year, that calculates out to 1 injury caused by a dropped object every 10 minutes.

What is Addressed in this New Standard?Workers Struck By Objects

This standard establishes minimum design, performance, testing and labeling requirements for equipment solutions that reduce dropped objects incidents in industrial and occupation settings. Dropped objects include hand tools, instrumentation, small parts, structural components and other items that need to be transferred and used at heights.

Make the Change Today

It is highly recommended that all objects, whether they are people or tools, be protected from falls. OSHA now requires that if you work in an environment where there is a risk of falling objects, you must do the following:

• Secure tools and materials to prevent them from falling on people below
• Barricade hazard areas and post warning signs
• Use toe boards, screens on guardrails or scaffolds to prevent falling objects
• Use debris nets, catch platforms or canopies to catch or deflect falling objects

It is Your Responsibility

It is the responsibility of every safety manager, construction superintendent, overseer & worker to make sure they understand the dangers they face when working at-height. Fall prevention means preventing things from falling, whether they are people, tools or equipment. Having the proper knowledge and correct equipment will go a long way in keeping you and your fellow workers safe.PDF-box

High-Visibility Apparel – To Be Seen is to Be Safe

What is High-Visibility Apparel & Why Do I Need to Wear It?Min Requirements

High-Visibility Apparel is a type of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that has highly reflective properties or feature a color that is easily noticeable from any type of background. Why wear High-Visibility Apparel? Its simple, the main objective of Hi-Vis Apparel is so you are easily seen and standout while near roadways, on a jobsite or other similar areas where you are exposed to higher levels of risk from motor vehicles or heavy equipment.

Updated High-Visibility Safety Standards

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has officially approved a new edition of the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 standard. This new standard will consolidate the ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel (HVSA) & ANSI/ISEA 207-2011 American National Standard for High-Visibility Public Safety Vests. This new standard was put together to establish a single, comprehensive document that takes all occupational tasks into consideration.

New Categorization

With the merge of ANSI/ISEA 107 (roadway) & ANSI/ISEA 207 (public safety) standards, there was a need to create new garment type classifications based on the work environment and level of protection necessary.

Type O – Off-Road Use (Class 1 Only)

Provides the necessary visibility to workers who are not exposed to traffic.

Type R – Roadway Use (Class 2 & 3)

Provides enhanced visibility for workers who are exposed to traffic and working in area that have complex backgrounds.

Type P – Public Safety (Class 2 & 3)

Provides enhanced visibility for emergency and law enforcement personnel for both roadway and off-road environments

What is ANSI Class E?

ANSI Supplemental Class E covers High-Visibility pants, bib overalls, shorts & gaiters. These pieces of Hi-Vis Apparel are NOT ANSI compliant, but when combined with a Class 2 or 3 garment, the combination satisfies Class 3 requirements. This classification will remain the same under the ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 standard.

Tanner’s Extensive Inventory of High-Visibility ApparelHi-Vis Apparel

One of Tanner’s main goals is to help keep all workers safe while they are on the job, which is why we carry such an extensive inventory of High-Visibility Apparel. Most of our Hi-Vis Apparel can be found in the departments listed below.
