An important part of any safety program is fall protection. There are many ways to provide fall protection, and the most effective approach depends on the specific circumstances.
Anchors can be used to provide a point of attachment for personal fall arrest systems. Horizontal lifelines can be used to create a continuous line of protection, making it easy for workers to move around without having to disconnect and reconnect their fall protection devices. Access platforms can also be used to provide fall protection, and they can be particularly effective in areas where there is a lot of movement or where work surfaces are uneven. By understanding the different options for fall protection, employers can ensure that their employees are protected from the dangers of falling.

Rooftop Fall Protection
HVAC equipment presents unique hazards to maintenance personnel. Understanding equipment construction, access, code criteria and operating requirements is critical to both new and retrofit applications. We specialize in:
- Equipment access platforms
- Sound and vibration attenuation
- Air and water hygiene
- Gas monitoring
- Davits and rigging assemblies
- Custom access hatches and doors
- Machine guarding
Gallery: HVAC Safety
We design safety enclosures and barriers to separate incompatible work functions and minimize sound, temperature and particulate hazards.
Risk assessment is the first step in designing an effective machine guarding solution. Risk assessors must evaluate the specific risks posed by the machines in question, as well as the likelihood of those risks occurring. Once the risks have been identified, steps can be taken to mitigate them. In some cases, this may involve modifying the machine itself, or installing additional safety features such as emergency stop buttons or safety fencing. In other cases, it may be necessary to provide employee training on how to safely operate the machinery. Whatever the solution, it is important to ensure that all hazards are properly controlled in order to protect workers from injuries.

Fume, Dust, and Water Filtration
Our custom and pre-engineered filtration systems remove environmental contaminants at the source.
Airborne hazards are a major concern in many industries. Dust, fumes, and even water can pose a serious threat to worker' health. In order to protect workers, many employers have implemented filtration systems. Dust collection systems collect airborne particles from the work area and filter them out before they can be breathed in. Fume extraction systems work similarly, but they are designed to remove fumes and other airborne contaminants. Water filtration systems help to remove hazards from water sources, ensuring that workers have access to clean and safe water. By implementing these types of filtration systems, employers can help to create a safer workplace for their employees.
We bring over 30 years of experience in the design and installation of air and water filtration systems serving buildings and manufacturing environments from portable plant solutions to large scale direct evacuation control (DEC) systems serving steel melt industrial process environments.
- Filter walls and environmental booths
- Industrial air cleaners
- Ductless filtration systems
- Portable fume collection units
- Skid-mounted mobile systems
- Dust collection
- Water filtration for hydronic and process applications
Sound and Vibration Solutions
Vibration and elevated sound levels may reduce the lifespan of plant equipment and negatively impact joint occupants. These issues are often overlooked and the negative impacts might not manifest for several years. Addressing sound and vibration issues up-front can benefit worker efficiency and safety, and protect the long-term health of employees. We offer the following sound and vibration services:
- Investigation and testing
- Custom sound attenuation for HVAC and machine applications
- Vibration isolation design and retrofit
- Sound enclosures
Environmental Hygiene Testing and Solutions
Environmental Hygiene issues may affect both human health and mechanical systems. These issues are often interrelated as poor equipment conditions or design deficiencies may affect building occupants downstream. Our team will assist with data collection and observations related to environmental air and water systems.We also support environmental hygienists with the evaluation of mechanical systems and potential causal factors. Our reports address both findings and mechanical recommendations for improvement.
Foreign Object Damage Control
Foreign Object Damage, or FOD, is a serious problem in many industries. Equipment damage caused by FOD can be costly and time-consuming to repair, and it can also lead to process contamination and unsafe working conditions. There are many possible solutions to the problem of FOD, but it is important to find the right solution for each individual company. Some common solutions include better maintenance procedures, FOD detection systems, and changes to the way materials are handled.
By taking steps to reduce FOD, companies can save money, improve safety, and avoid costly equipment damage.
