According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics data, falls from height accounts for at least 14 percent of all fatalities in the workplace. OSHA standards related to scaffolding and ladders are regularly among the most frequently cited violations.
The National Safety Council has a team who travels around the country, visiting worksites to identify common workplace safety hazards and it comes to no surprise that falling from hight is one of them and failing to comply with OSHA standards related to scaffolding and ladders are between the most frequently cited violations.
At Gentex Scaffolds, we have been manufacturing high quality steel scaffolding systems and work platforms since 1945 that comply with OSHA standards.
Besides manufacturing the usual scaffold sizes like the 2′ to 4′ scaffolds or the 6′ to 8′ scaffolds, we custom design, engineer and manufacture our scaffolds to satisfy custom needs and specific situations where other scaffolding systems won’t fit or work properly.
If you need more information about our custom scaffolding systems and work platforms, do not hesitate to give us a call at 617-387-5400 or send us your questions by sending us an email.
