Ensuring Safety: AMPJACK® Best Practices for Working at Heights

Working at Heights
Working at heights is a crucial aspect of many industries, from construction to maintenance. While it’s essential for getting the job done, it also comes with inherent risks that demand a proactive approach to safety.At AMPJACK®, we prioritize the well-being of our team members above all else, especially when they’re working in elevated environments. Here are some key safety measures and best practices we follow to ensure that everyone returns home safely at the end of the day.

Hazard Assessment is Paramount

Before any work commences, a comprehensive hazard and risk assessment is conducted. This process helps us identify and evaluate potential falling hazards, enabling us to implement control methods to reduce risks. Our commitment to safety starts long before our team members reach the worksite.

Compliance with OSHA Regulations

To maintain the highest standards of safety, we strictly adhere to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.

OSHA mandates the use of fall protection whenever a worker could potentially fall 6 feet (2 meters) or more in the construction industry and 4 feet (1.2 meters) or more in general industry. We ensure that our practices align with these guidelines to provide a safe working environment.

Equipment Inspection and Maintenance

The equipment we use for fall protection is the frontline defense against accidents. Before each use, all fall protection gear undergoes rigorous inspection. If any equipment is found to be defective or unsafe, it’s immediately tagged as such and removed from service. This uncompromising commitment to equipment safety guarantees that our team members can rely on their gear without hesitation.

100% Tie Off: A Non-Negotiable Rule

At AMPJACK®, we leave no room for compromise when it comes to fall protection. Our strict policy dictates that 100% tie-off with a Y-lanyard must be maintained at all times. We understand that positioning straps are not a substitute for fall protection, and we ensure that every team member complies with this rule without exception.

Setting the Safety Bar High

We take immense pride in our 100% fall protection policy and our unwavering commitment to the safety of our team. Our safety measures match or exceed the stringent requirements set by industry clients and oversight groups.
