About Project

Our client supports an airport authority by moving passengers throughout the airport safely.  This mass transit is done by utilizing enclosed ‘passenger cars’.  When maintenance of these passenger cars is performed, employees are required to be on top of these passenger cars, which causes a fall risk to the worker.

Our Client’s Challenge

When the maintenance work is being performed, their employees are more than four feet above a lower level. Since this work cannot be “engineered out of the workplace”, fall protection is required.  In addition, horizontal mobility is required as the employees need to traverse along the entire length of the passenger car.

Our Approach And Solution

NSS Fall Protection Specialists visited this facility to perform the Initial Site Assessment.  Our recommendation was to install a rigid form of fall protection because the clearance in the event of a fall is limited.  Specifically, NSS designed, furnished, and installed a series of enclosed track systems in this maintenance bay to ensure a safe working environment for their employees.
