According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) there were 54 scaffold fatalities in 2009. Furthermore, in a Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) study, 72% of workers injured in scaffold accidents attributed the accident to the employee slipping or being struck by a falling object.
One construction company in Florida heeded this message and decided to order and install some safety measures on their scaffolds, ensuring crews’ safety. They found our non-slip treads through an internet search and requested a sample of them to do an on-site test. They found that boots stuck quite well to the raised-button surface of the tread, and immediately ordered a few powder coated safety yellow treads in a custom length to fit nicely on their scaffolding.
Handi-Ramp later received an e-mail from the owner of the construction company detailing how easy it was to mount the treads and that he would spread word of mouth to whomever he encountered looking for a similar solution.
