Ideal Shield recently attended the 2016 National Safety Council Expo in Anaheim, California. When asked about the buzz at the safety show, Marty Venegas told us the handrail and roof rail were common topics of conversation at the Shield booth. It’s good to know that companies are taking notice of such important products, especially with OSHA cracking down harder on the roof rail standards.
During the show, Shield learned that, for the sixth year in a row, fall protection lands the top spot on OSHA’s Top 10 Cited Violations list. To help combat the issue, Ideal Shield is launching a new portable roof rail option for companies that aren’t interested in installing a permanent system. Say hello to the Mobile Parapet Barrier, currently in production for one of Shield’s customers.
