Fall Protection Systems, Inc. is the leading fall protection supplier to American manufacturing and handling companies of dry bulk materials and chemicals.

Fall Protection Systems has the experience and the knowledge to provide permanent coverage over your facility's track. The loading of rail cars is a hazardous operation and your workers are at risk unless they have a form of protection against accidental falls. A genuine Fall Protection Systems installation will give your workers the peace of mind to work with the confidence of complete protection. When your workers are opening hatches and avoiding load spouts, our systems will prevent unnecessary slip or fall injuries and save you money on insurance costs and lost work time.
Sometimes your employees have to do their jobs on a moving train. This is an extremely unstable working condition conducive to slips and falls. This is why it is absolutely necessary to provide your workers with fall protection. Our trolley rail style of fall protection is best suited for this type of situation. By holding the lifeline of our system while working, balance and stability is greatly improved. Not only that, any slips or falls will be arrested before your worker can fall to his or her knees.
Open hatches provide opportunity for falls. Swing/Swivel spouts create hazardous conditions while opening and closing hatches. This is one of the most common causes for falls when loading and unloading trucks. Fall Protection Systems provides full protection for all instances of product loading and unloading.
Maneuvering over uneven surfaces when tarping loads is very dangerous. Heavy tie down straps and inclement weather (ice, snow, wind, rain, etc) create conditions conducive to falls.
Large equipment inspections can be safely done using our trolley rail fall protection. Repair and preventative maintenance facilities can be covered with our fall protection systems indoors or out.
If you wish to cover an area that is located underneath a substantial structure with a fall protection system, considerable cost savings may be possible if the system can be attached to that structure. FPS has attached thousands of trolley rail style fall protection systems to preexisting roofing support members for warehouses and factory buildings as well as load outs, elevator structures, heavy awnings, and countless other structures.
When considering these applications, a careful analysis of the structure is a mandatory prerequisite, and no one does this more effectively than our professional staff. Upon request, our site survey technicians can visit your facility free of charge to analyze the potential to add a fall arrest system.
