The X-Deck by Safetec – OSHA and ANSI

January 21st, 2009

We have been through the safety departments of several major companies safety departments.  We presently sell to NASA, Kennedy Space Center, Disney, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grummon, General Mills, General Electric, Bath Iron Works, United States Air Force at Ft. Knox – we have also been approved through the Sears and Grainger safety departments and are approved vendors for both.
We were named as a new safety product by the Georgia and Ohio department of Labor (OSHA) in 2006 and 2008.  The Georgia Dept. of Labor had a seminar on platforms/ladders and featured our X-Deck as a safe alternative.  Program given by Ralph Blessing, safety director for McKenney’s Mechanical – Atlanta office and OSHA instructor.   They also asked the US Dept. of Labor – OSHA in Washington DC if they saw any problems showing our product at their safety show.  The U.S. Dept of labor found no problems. Bovis Lend-Lease named us as the “Best Practice” over step ladders.

We meet all the standards (OSHA and ANSI) on Scaffolding and platforms including:
Strength (SWL) – we have been tested and certified by an outside independent testing agency
Handrails – height and strength (200 lbs from all angles)
Base to height ratio’s
3 points of contact for mounting and dismounting
OSHA compliant gates
ANSI – welding and ladder standards (all work by certified welders and certified equipment)
Tread-plate is an aggressive, non-slip design
We also have a anti-tip design that far exceed our competitors.
Check your local and state standards for all compliance issues.

If  there anything specific you need me to address or any other issues. Please contact us.
