Benefits of Turnkey Fall Protection Systems: Design, Installation, and Certification

In the book How Big Things Get Done: The Surprising Factors That Determine the Fate of Every Project, from Home Renovations to Space Exploration and Everything In Between, researchers analyzed projects of all sizes to understand why they succeed and fail. They found a shocking number of projects: 91.5% go over budget, don’t finish on time, or both.

One way to improve project success rates is through a turnkey approach. Turnkey solutions deliver enhanced control and consistency to your building’s fall protection project. This strategy helps combat the challenges of miscommunication, material shortages, and poor planning. Keep reading to explore the advantages of a comprehensive service package for fall protection requirements, providing confidence and security in turnkey fall protection systems.

Why You Need Comprehensive Fall Protection Systems from Start to Finish

Falls from heights are a significant risk in the construction and general industry. Second only to highway crashes in avoidable workplace fatalities, falls from heights are also a leading cause of injuries, time away from work, and regulatory citations. In efforts to reduce these tragic incidents, OSHA released the National Emphasis Program (NEP) on Falls, and continues to increase inspections, citations, and awareness for safely working at heights. As a building owner or property manager, you must provide proper fall protection to meet OSHA requirements.

Too many cooks in the kitchen, in this case, multiple vendors, can prolong the project. Turnkey solutions mitigate these challenges through a comprehensive approach to the entire fall protection project. Our turnkey process removes the project management piece from your plate. Furthermore, our experiences accessing building facades and working on roofs allow us to design systems that will meet the needs of the facility and the people who have to use them. In short, we handle everything, so you don’t have to.

Here’s how we do it:

We begin by learning how you plan on using the fall protection system and what your building requires. With this knowledge, we design a system that meets your needs and safety regulations. From there, we seamlessly pass the baton to our installation team. Lastly, if applicable, we certify the system using OSHA guidelines.

Throughout the project, we serve as your single point of contact to leverage from initial design through installation, leaving nowhere to point fingers except back at us.

Streamlined Installation Processes

By leveraging the expertise of a single provider, you ensure everyone is on the same page. This strategy also delivers consistency, from design to certification. It also saves you the time of having to manage multiple vendors. You can be confident that your fall protection system meets stringent safety and regulatory standards.

  • Streamlined Process: Turnkey solutions integrate the design, installation, and certification phases into a seamless process.
  • Expertise and Consistency: Working with a single provider guarantees consistent quality and adherence to safety standards throughout the project, instilling confidence and security in the process.
  • Cost Efficiency: Turnkey solutions help control costs by minimizing delays and ensuring all project aspects are managed by experts, preventing budget overruns. Our solution helps avoid delays and costly rework by completing the job correctly the first time.

Substandard fall protection can cause preventable incidents. Leveraging our turnkey approach can protect workers to reduce this risk as well as the associated noncompliance costs.

Certification and Compliance Assurance

Meeting compliance requirements can complicate a project, especially when there is confusion or contention between the design and installation. Again, the consistency of turnkey solutions comes into play to ensure the system meets requirements and can be installed properly, given the building’s architectural features. Our building services divisions use the same fall protection systems, so we have a unique perspective when designing and installing these systems. We always keep the end use and longevity in mind. Additionally, our team of experts installs fall protection systems using the best resources available so you can feel confident that your building has the highest level of protection.

From initial design to final certification, a single point of contact simplifies the process, relieving you of potential complexities. Our process provides a smooth, compliant, and cost-effective solution for installing and maintaining your fall protection system. You also gain the added assurance of knowing your system meets OSHA requirements after the third-party engineer completes the testing.

Ensure Building Safety and Compliance with Turnkey Fall Protection Systems

Installing fall protection systems that comply with OSHA regulations is crucial for worker safety and avoiding costly fines. We expect organizations like OSHA to continue to enhance measures to help eliminate fall hazards, such as the NEP on Falls and the National Safety Stand-Down held in early May.

Turnkey solutions for fall protection systems offer a strategic approach to eliminating fall hazards while helping avoid project delays. This approach can significantly reduce costs, leaving you optimistic about the financial benefits.

How confident are you in your building’s fall protection system?

Our Rooftop Safety: Fall Hazard Assessment enables you to review your rooftop safety to determine where your building stands and identify your fall protection needs. Don’t leave fall protection to chance. Contact A1 today and take the first step to ensuring your building’s fall protection system is part of the solution to creating a safer work environment for everyone working at heights.
