Swing into Safety with YellowGate

Do you know the full scope of the benefits offered by industrial safety gates? Though many of us interact with these key safety features on a daily basis, it can be easy to overlook the extensive perks of using such products on your job site. At Northern Platforms, one of our biggest passions is helping our clients find the right safety solutions for their needs and we’re proud to supply Western Canada with leading products, including swing gates by Yellow Gate to help achieve the safest worksites possible. Below, we’ll cover a few of the main benefits of using self closing safety swing gates. Read on to learn more!

Safety First

It’s no secret that today’s safety standards are stricter than ever, and for good cause. Implementing safety routines and using the right equipment goes a long way to preventing the countless potential accidents and deadly occurrences that happen on ill-prepared job sites each year. Fall protection is one of the biggest considerations when it comes to those working with catwalks, platforms, loading platforms, rolling stairs, and related equipment. Swing gates act as an effective passive protective measure for industrial and commercial settings, keeping your crew safe, happy, and keeping productivity where it needs to be as a result. Below are just a few of the many applications where swing gates excel:

1. Roof Top Rescue

If you’ve got crew members navigating rooftops, you need to have fall protection in place. Swing gates are a fantastic option that allows you to safely provide a dependable barrier that gives peace of mind and drastically reduces your chance for incidences. Swing gates have become a popular option on commercial and industrial rooftops, providing both ease of access without compromising on their intended safety features.

2. Ladder Security

Each year countless OH&S / OSHA violations occur due to unprotected ladder openings. Without the proper safety measures in place, falls become an inevitability, and leave you liable in the long run. Self closing safety wing gates are an easy way to add safety and give your workers much-deserved protection as they go about your tasks, keeping you on the right side of the law and everyone out of the hospital.

3. Walkways

Dealing with tight spaces or a busy worksite that needs a safe path for your employees? Swing gates and railings can help! YellowGate products are highly customizable and come with modular capabilities, making it easy to design a walkway that allows your team to navigate safely and efficiently all day long.

4. Productivity Boost

Did you know that safer workspaces often have a much higher productivity rate than those that lack the proper measures? Swing gates do far more than just preventing accidents: they promote a culture that’s focused on doing the job right with minimal errors across the board. With your crew free to focus on the job at hand instead of worrying about compensating for ever-present dangers, you’ll enjoy plenty of productivity and all the benefits that follow.
