METALWALK® and OSHA: A Match Made in Heaven – Design Components

When it concerns your metal structure, storage facility or factory structure, the most essential ongoing concern is the safety of the employees inside. Keeping workers safe, healthy and happy should be top-of-mind when they are inside your structure, but what about exterior? When workers are on your roofing– and you understand they will be– what I keeping them safe up there? OSHA has extremely specific guidelines for employee safety, and Style Elements Inc.’s METALWALK ® roof walkway system satisfies or goes beyond all of them. METALWALK ® and OSHA are a match made in paradise.

Taking a look at METALWALK ® and OSHA standards

Obviously you would do whatever in your power to keep your employees safe, but OSHA requirements are in place to keep everyone in line with workplace security finest practices. Failure to follow these standards, for whatever reason, could lead to monetary and criminal charges versus you, the employer, or worse, accident, injury or perhaps the death of a staff member. Needless to say, following OSHA standards in your metal structure need to be a no-brainer.

How do METALWALK ® and OSHA work together?
