"We were recently awarded a project that required us to unload 5,305 rolls of geotextile materials off of flatbed trucks. The client has a 4' fall protection rule so we spent several weeks researching the best options for abiding by the safety requirement while efficiently unloading materials. We finally settled on the Possum 40 for our fall protection needs. We have been able to unload materials in a much more safe environment than we ever have in the past. The Possum 40 allows us to effortlessly and safely climb to the top of a load and begin rigging for unloading. We have also found that our mechanical services group uses the fall protection system frequently to perform routine maintenance and repairs on equipment. Initially, we were concerned about the investment in such a system for use on a construction site and fear that it was a one project solution. After several months of use, the system has now become the standard for large unloading operations. We have found that there is also high demand for the unit to move on to other projects once we complete our current task. Any project that has large equipment fleets to maintain or large volumes of materials to unload should consider the Possum Fall Protection Systems."

"The system is up and running. We had a training class and got 3 people certified. We have currently completed 5 railcar loadings. The guys love the new system. They do not have cables and lanyards around the feet to trip on or over. We are very happy with the SRL going all the way to the ground. Some of our customers require the loaded railcar be covered with a plastic cover. Once installed the cover has to be secured in place using a ladder to access the side of the railcar in order to staple the cover. The fact that they are tied off while going up and down the ladder carrying a pneumatic stapler makes us feel much safer should they fall. We haven't actually measured the time it takes to tie down a railcar but feel we have cut the time required by about 1/3 of what it used to take. They do not have to secure a safety line prior to climbing onto the top of the railcar."

"I am writing to thank you for the prevention of what could have been a serious accident at my plant. We were loading com train, and the weather was very uncooperative. It had been raining all day, with no letup. Since it was raining we had to use our fall protection system. As the day went on, the employee who was opening and closing lids began, naturally, to tire. As he was walking along the top of one car that had open lids, he slipped on the wet dust and water that had accumulated on the top of the car. He did not even make it to his knees before the SRL locked and caught him. This slip could have cost him his life since he was at the end of the car. Without this system, he would have fallen to the ground and potentially underneath the next car.; Again, I want to thank you for your excellent product and the part it played in continuing our terminals 1400+ days without a lost time injury."

"The fall protection system we had installed in our warehouse bays has been such a good investment in the safety of our drivers! We have a lot of incoming tanker loads of materials at our plant by vendors. We have gotten phone calls from several companies thanking us for providing extra safety for their drivers. We had a recent unannounced walk-through audit by OSHA. Fall protection was at the top of their priority list, and the OSHA rep applauded our company for the installation of our fall protection system. After the walk-through, he said, "I'm going to do something that I rarely do! I'm submitting the inspection report stating NO VIOLATIONS!"

"I want to thank you Bob, for your help and patience as we worked out the details and install of our new fall protection system. I am sure it will provide years of trouble free service and will protect us if we ever need to use it (I hope and pray we do not test it). Your install guys were professional and did an outstanding job. I want to thank your crew again in helping us to go home safely to our loved ones-Ron."
