Exton, Penn.-based WorkSafe Company, a sister company of Safety Hoist Company, announced on Tuesday that its pump jack and ladder jack scaffolding fall protection systems have received significant updates.
In a Jan. 16 news release, the company said its revamped scaffolding fall protection systems, a commonly deployed scaffolding system used on residential and commercial siding, windows, and other exterior construction, can be easily transportable in pickup trucks, panels, and cargo vans.
“WorkSafe’s fall arrest systems and guardrails have always filled a huge need in the industry,” said Mike Dell, WorkSafe and Safety Hoist Company executive vice president. “Now they can be shipped, stored, and travel conveniently from job site to job site.”
WorkSafe has kitted its three core systems: ladder jacks, pump jacks, and guardrail systems for roofers. The most significant change to the system centers around its guardrail beam — a crucial part of all three systems.
Previously, the company sold the guardrail as a one-piece, 21’ part. With the WorkSafe redesign, the guardrail is now assembled in three 7’ sections, making it significantly easier to transport to and from jobs.
“Our goal [at WorkSafe] is to provide job site personnel with a functional way to work and tie off on pump jack and ladder jack scaffolding,” Dell said. “WorkSafe’s simple, safe, and affordable product line solves these common job site problems and makes for a safer workplace.”
