Original Press Release:
New Product, the Beam Runner(TM), Reduces the Potential for Fall in the Construction Industry by Allowing Workers to Anchor to Steel Beams in Seconds Using Only One Hand - This Will Save Lives
8 July 2008
Beam Runner LLC is a manufacturing company on Long Island whose founder has addressed the concerns of several of his friends in the construction industry: "We have harnesses and lanyards, but no easy place to tie off."
OSHA requires a suitable anchor point when a worker is above six feet. This should be capable of withstanding a potential 5,000 pound applied impact force.
A master machinist and inventor, our founder designed and patented a high-tech, 3 ½ pound stainless steel tool that works like a clothes pin - easy to handle, easy to carry, and attaches to a beam in less than 10 second. This tool has been introduced to the electrical power industry and has been well-received by safety specialist and workers alike.
Every week in the news there is a story about another construction accident, New York, Las Vegas, etc.. In the worst cases, someone needlessly dies. Usually workers have safety equipment available but are not using it - they are not anchored to a stable structure. What is more stable than a steel I-Beam? The Beam Runner(TM) will clamp a beam in seconds giving worker no reason not to use it.
Workers' safety is the most important part of the job.
Beam Runner(TM) was designed with the worker in mind (user friendly), simple to use and easy to carry. Beam Runner(TM) is used in conjunction with the workers' fall arrest equipment. Beam Runner(TM) is carried in a thigh-mounted holster and attaches to almost any structural steel - horizontal, vertical, diagonal - in less than 10 seconds. Using only one hand to operate allows the worker to hold on with the other hand. This is the perfect combo for the worker's and the company's safety and profit.
