The Importance of Guardrails

CEO Corner

Whenever possible, workers should utilize guardrails. Perimeter control or “passive protection” is the best way to keep your workers safe.

Guardrails can either be built on the jobsite or be pre-fabricated from a manufacturer. Pre-fabricated guardrail can be purchased to be permanent or temporary.

No matter which type you choose, they are the easiest fall protection systems for your workers to use.
