Fall Protection

Safety Anchors & Lifelines - Can be used for the tie-back of Controlled descent equipment (CDA or CDE) and must be designed to support up to a 5,000 lb. load. Safety anchors and lifelines are professionally engineered, by an engineer familiar in the design and installation of the equipment, based on the intended use of the anchors and/or lifelines. Anchors are specialty equipment and are essential parts of a fall protection system.

Guardrails - Roofs must have a 42'" high parapet or guardrail for passive fall protection of any persons on the roof. Other areas which require installation of guardrails is around skylights, floor openings, roof hatches and other sunken areas on the roof, to prevents falls that can result in serious injury or even death

Powered Platforms

Powered, suspended work platforms are custom order items, modular by nature and designed to match your building''s needs. We provide this equipment with versatility built-in and safety always in mind.

Testing & Certification

Understanding and complying with regulations can be confusing and guidelines may be up for interpretation depending on the equipment, the building, and the job. Building owners are required to keep a certification record of each inspection and test required, to be readily available for review by CA DOSH / Fed OSHA upon request.

Lynn Safety can help keep testing of your equipment up-to-date, and make sure you have the certifications required to meet all relevant OSHA, State, and Federal safety standards. Doing so will reduce legal exposure to building owners, managers, and Contract employers in the event of an occurrence.

{{this.show}} {{this.hide}} OPOS Document/Work Plan

OPOS Document/Work Plan

An OPOS, or Operating Procedure Outline Sheet, verifies the equipment on the building to be used for window cleaning and exterior building maintenance procedures. Per California code, it must include a number of elements in pictorial and written form to instruct employees about safe use of roof supported building maintenance equipment and/or procedures for window cleaning. It has become a major part of our industry and, while it can be appear to be a complicated document, it is essential that employees can easily read and understand it. In addition, the document must be written by a person with a California Scaffold Inspection and Testing Certification. Lynn Safety is the industry-leader in providing OPOS documents and we develop the building specific document, as required by CA OSHA, as well as the Work Plan, a Fed OSHA required document, for exterior building maintenance equipment.
