Revolutionizing How To Address The Swing Radius Hazards
Reduce On-site Construction Safety Hazards
The Magnetic Gorilla Guard attaches to mobile heavy equipment to warn workers of a possible crushing risk.
OSHA enforces standards for a safe working environment.
Satisfy swing radius hazards requirements.
The requirements apply where there are accessible areas in which the equipment’s rotating superstructure poses a reasonably foreseeable risk of pinching or crushing an employee against another part of the equipment or other objects. OSHA requires a safety zone to prevent employees from entering these hazard areas. Control lines, railings or similar barriers to mark the boundaries of the Swing/Crush Hazard Zone must be deployed.
In simple terms, a rotating crane or derrick can cause a lot of harm to a person standing too close.
Magnetic Gorilla Guard Is The Solution
- CHANGE LOCATIONS WITHOUT HAVING TO REPOSITION WARNING BARRICADES
- MAGNETIC GORILLA GUARD ATTACHES TO MOBILE EQUIPMENT TO CREATE A SAFETY ZONE
- ADDRESSES WORK AREA CONTROL REQUIREMENTS OF SWING RADIUS HAZARDS
According to Bill Sloniker, WA State Dept. of L&I – Crane Certification Program Supervisor / Crane Technical Specialist, the Magnetic Gorilla Guard satisfies the WAC 296-155-53400 General Requirements for work area control and swing radius hazards. When applied in the manner of the accompanying photos meet the standard for protection against pinch/crush hazards by the superstructure. In addition, employers must train their employees how to recognize the pinch/crush hazard areas.
