For over 30 years, we’ve been designing safety gates to secure the ledges of pallet drop areas on mezzanines and rack picking systems. Our safety gates, including the original Roly® Safety Gate, provide fall protection in hundreds of material handling and manufacturing facilities in virtually every industry.
Thirty-five years in any industry is a long time...we're celebrating that milestone this summer. Mezzanine Safeti-Gates was created by James Conway 35 years ago, and the business has focused on providing safety gate systems for industrial facilities ever since. Back then, facilities looked much different - there were not as many levels or intricate picking modules and manufacturing machinery was very different. OSHA regulations were not as strict as they are today, and ANSI standards were not even created back then. Eastman Kodak kick-started our focus on fall protection.”
We have extended our safety gate line into the dock area. The new, patented Dock-Lift safety gate secures ledges of loading dock lifts, pit mounted dock lifts and scissor lifts, providing fall protection for employees as they use the lift. Of course these new safety gates meet OSHA and ANSI standards.
Safety regulations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) can be difficult to navigate; have you sat down and tried to read through the code that pertains to elevated platforms or pallet drop areas? It can be difficult to determine which of the codes apply to that application. When trying to determine the best practice for safety in a facility, ensuring compliance with the proper OSHA codes is mandatory. But, even though those codes are confusing, there is an easy way to ensure you will meet the code: consult the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) first.
