Protection Barriers

What Are The Laws On Protection Barriers

Protection barrier laws require property owners and event hosts to keep employees and every other person who's present out of harm's way. Failure to do so can result in the owner or host being held liable for any injuries that occur. These laws apply to:

How Can Protection Barriers Be Used to Comply with Work Area Laws?

There are several types of protection barriers that can be used in industrial work areas to ensure accidents are avoided and safety inspections are passed. Using these barriers in an industrial area will result in full Chapter 8 compliance. For areas where work vehicles like lift trucks or transport trolleys operate, collision protection bars can be used to keep other equipment safe from damage. Collision bars can also provide workers with a safe place to walk.

Corner protector guards can ensure that fork lift operators are able to safely drive without causing any damage to corners throughout a warehouse or other commercial property. High impact protection guards can be used to guide and separate traffic within an industrial area. Thanks to the strength and quality of these protection guards, they are fully TUV approved. Their bright yellow and black finish ensures they will always be fully visible to equipment drivers.

What Barriers Can Be Used to Keep Outdoor Events Safe?

Public safety is a major concern at any outdoor concert or sporting event. Because both events can bring tens of thousands of people to a single area, it's important that the area is fully equipped with the required crowd control protection barriers. Heavy duty steel barriers are the standard choice for keeping outdoor crowds safe and under control. One of the reasons this type of barrier is an excellent choice for ensuring everyone at an event stays safe is because as many barriers as necessary can be linked to each other. Since each steel barrier features a special clasp, the link between each connected barrier will be completely secure.

Which Protection Barriers Will Ensure Complete Safety Around Construction Sites?

Different work safety barriers are the best way to secure a construction site and ensure it's in compliance with all safety requirements. If a specific area of a construction site needs to be secured, a lightweight barrier set or expanding barrier can be used to restrict access to it. Expanding barriers are not only useful because they can quickly be added to a construction site, but also because they can be resized to secure areas of different sizes.

If construction is taking place near a walkway or other area that's trafficked by lots of pedestrians, fixed foot barriers can be put down to keep them away from the dangers of the site. What makes this type of barrier very useful for keeping pedestrians safe near potential hazards is multiple fixed foot barriers can be attached to each other to secure as large of an area as necessary.
