When working in a warehouse, ensuring workplace safety is a necessity. If you have mezzanines where warehouse employees are fulfilling their day-to-day job duties, then you need to protect them from any potential danger. With the correct kind of guardrail for your mezzanine, your employees will feel safe and secure in your warehouse.
The Safety Standards
When looking to buy a guardrail for your mezzanine, you need to make sure you’re working with a warehouse equipment contractor that understands the OSHA laws. The OSHA regulations require that the top edge height of top rail should be 42 inches plus or minus 3 inches above the walking/working level. When conditions warrant, the height of the top edge may exceed the 45-inch height.
OSHA also explains that guardrail systems should be capable of withstanding a weight of at least 200 pounds applied within 2 inches of the top edge. You should also make sure that the rail has the correct kind of finish so that it won’t snag on clothing or cut an employee.
Working With A Company You Can Trust
