BARRIER FALL PROTECTION SYSTEMS
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Dok-Guardian, Dok-Guardian LD and Safe-T-Gate Vertical only. Delete if not required.
 
A.
Loading Dock Protection:
1.
The loading dock solutions shall address OSHA regulation 1910.28 regarding "protection from fall hazards".
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
B.
Fall Protection Systems:
1.
Fall protection solutions shall address OSHA regulation 1910.28 regarding "protection from fall hazards".
a.
OSHA standard 1910.28(b) requires that employers shall provide fall hazard protection. This includes ensuring employees "on a walking-working surface with an unprotected side or edge that is 4 feet (1.2 m) or more above a lower level is protected from falling".
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if not required.
 
C.
Gate Systems:
1.
Gate systems for a walking-working elevated surface shall address ANSI regulation 6.4.3 regarding gates in guard protection systems.
a.
The ANSI standard section 6.4.3 published by the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Associations reads "any gate that provides an access opening through the guards for the purpose of loading and unloading material onto a work platform shall be designed such that the elevated surface is protected by guards at all times. Gates that swing open, slide open, or lift out leaving an unprotected opening in the guarding are not acceptable."
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Vacant loading docks create a dangerous 4-feet (1200 mm) drop-off for dock personnel and material handling equipment. The brutal reality of this dangerous drop-off is often recognized only after it is too late and a serious accident has happened. Protect your employees and equipment with the Dok-Guardian Safety Barrier from Rite-Hite. The Dok-Guardian is a simple, easy-to-use safety solution for almost any loading dock. Delete if not required.

a.
At the storing Warden, grasp the handle strap of curtain and walk curtain across the opening.
b.
Latch the steel bar attached to the end of the curtain into the latching bracket at the opposite side of the opening.
c.
Insure the bar is fully engaged in latching bracket.
d.
Note: Because the pull force may be up to 50lb, it is best to perform this operation with straight motions rather than twisting of the body.
5.
To store barrier:
a.
Grasp the handle strap of curtain and pull on curtain to unlatch the steel bar from the latching bracket.
b.
Walk the curtain back to opposite side of the opening while supporting the curtain to allow the curtain to properly roll up.
c.
Release the handle only when the curtain and bar are properly secured inside the Warden guard.
