Fall Protection Experts Collaborate in Grain Bin Fall Protection

Hy-Safe Technology is the first turnkey fall protection provider to collaborate with a group of fall protection experts to engineer, design, and install grain bin fall protection.

Hy-Safe Technology and fall protection experts Capital Safety have partnered with GSI Group to engineer, design, and install fall protection to address the serious issue of engulfment resulting from falls in grain bins. GSI Group played a vital part in the extensive structural analysis to ensure that their manufactured tanks could fully hold designed loads and an engineered fall restraint system. Since 1972, GSI has quickly become one of the largest steel storage bin manufacturers. Capital Safety is one of the world's leading manufacturers of fall protection.

GSI Group has partnered up with Hy-Safe Technology to perform all installations, training and service on the fall protection systems in their commercial bins (currently 105' diameter with 25,000lb roof loading). Hy-Safe Technology offers a variety of designed engineered solutions for grain bin fall protection. Safety conscious grain employers can be assured that every Hy-Safe engineered fall protection system is OSHA compliant and meets all ANSI standards.

Standing or walking on grain is a source of hazard and endangerment. Workers must be protected from engulfment and suffocation when working in grain bins, so it is of vital importance that all grain employers install fall restraint systems. As of August 2010, OSHA adopted an emphasis program directed at grain handling facilities. This program will significantly increase the likelihood of inspection with concentrated focus on safety-related grain handling policies and procedures.

Hy-Safe Technology provides turnkey fall protection solutions through innovative design, total dedication to customer service, and a complete range of fall protection equipment.
