Safety is a big priority in our industry as many contractors and business employees find themselves having to work in risky environments such as tall buildings. One way you can help keep you and your employee safe is to use the Sky Web II Fall Protection and Insulation Support System.
The Sky-Web-II® System is an innovative passive restraint system that protects workers from falls at the leading edge of a roof. It provides a “web” of knotted nylon mesh that is attached to the perimeter of the roof’s secondary structural members. This products leads to an increase in safety and reduces injury.
Be safe this year and look into using the Sky Web II Fall Protection System. You and you’re co-workers will be glad you did.
