Despite Skyway’s outstanding reputation for providing guardrail, fall arrest systems and also for providing multiple ideas and initiatives in order to keep the workforce safe at height, did you know that we also offer ground based barrier and handrail solutions which are designed to last and keep workers safe from everyday hazards which they might encounter.
Internal and External
This can include both internal and external situations. An example being in a factory situation where there are hazardous chemicals, machinery operating, an electrical hazard or simply the possibility of falling.
Externally, our safety barriers can also be used along sharp declines, at roadsides, or where there is machinery in operation.
The priority must always be to protect people from hazards, and obviously with the more employees you might have, the risk is increased that an accident could occur. Ensuring that every possible preventative measure is in place should always be any employer’s first priority. Our Kee Klamp handrail fittings provide a strong and durable solution which eliminates the need for welding, cutting, threading or bolting. This in turn saves both time and money as it speeds up the installation process.
Whatever the need, the flexibility of fittings allow barrier systems and handrails to be designed and installed easily to meet a variety of specific site requirements and overcome the potential for accidents.
With our safety barrier and handrail solutions, this risk can be practically eradicated, ensuring peace of mind both for the employer and employees as they go about their daily tasks. Although our protective systems offer a great permanent solution in many areas, sometimes it is required that a protected area is visited occasionally in order to carry out works. This is where our self-closing Kee Gate perfectly complements these systems. The idea of the Kee Gate is to provide a safe access point, which eliminates the risk which can potentially be left behind by basic human error when that passageway is left open. The Kee Gates self-closing mechanism ensures that the void is filled immediately and that whoever happens to be next at that location is in no danger. It is strong, durable, can be cut to measure and can also be powder coated in a high visibility yellow.
At Skyway, we believe that it is never acceptable for anyone to be in danger while going about their everyday lives, whether this is in a working environment or simply visiting a public area. In an ideal world, these risks would not exist, and accidents wouldn’t happen. But of course, we don’t live in an ideal world. The hazards do exist, and are usually due to somebody not taking the necessary action and ensuring that there are preventative measures in place. That individual, whether an employer or otherwise, simply thinks the accident probably won’t happen. When it comes to safety, ‘probably won’t happen’ is simply not good enough.
Especially when, with Skyway, you can ensure that these accidents are avoided.
