Generally, any unprotected sidewalk edge, platform, roof edge, stairs or other elevated areas that may fall must be equipped with handrails.
In general, any platform, roof edge, stairs and other elevated areas that are easy to fall should be installed with anti-collision handrails.
According to the statistics of the Health and Safety Supervisor (HSE), slips, trips and falls are the most common causes of workplace injuries. In fact, more than 29% of workplace injuries are the result of slips, trips and falls. Falling from height accounts for 7%.
In serious cases, falling may even lead to death. In 2016/17 alone, 25 workers fell from height and died.
As a result of production losses and other costs, such events cause employers to suffer a loss of £ 512 million annually.
In order to prevent work and fall from height, it is essential that you install the correct handrail in your workplace.
Why consider the safety anti-collision handrail?
Handrails are an effective way to prevent serious injuries. They provide protection and safety for employees working on any type of lifting platform.
If the mezzanine floor needs loading access, or needs to protect the opening at the top of stairs or ladders, we recommend to use the door of tubular structure. You can match it with the adjacent handrail design.
One of the most common factors that lead to a large number of stairs falling is the neglect of handrails. These falls are usually the result of losing balance. The main function of handrail is to provide support when ascending or descending stairs. When a person loses his balance, they instinctively reach out to grab something to stabilize themselves.
