Relevant Fall Risks and OSHA Regulations

The railcar industry poses unique obstacles for workers. Without the right equipment, it is possible for employees to slip and fall, especially when railcars may be covered with rainwater or snow. The same principle applies to ladder rungs, stairs and railings.

Railcar maintenance requires professionals to lift individuals to working heights — this could be upward of 15′ or more. Railcar fall protection solutions enable workers to service multiple machines in a confined space without relying on unstable platforms.

For general industry practices, an individual working at four’ or higher must have fall protection according to OSHA 1910 standards. This means anyone handling materials near the top of a railcar must have a fall protection system in place. You can protect your employees and save your company from expensive fines and injuries by integrating a versatile railcar fall protection system from a reputable source like Malta Dynamics.
