Reopening the Country Under New Workforce Conditions

Keeping Commercial Roofers Safe With Built In Social Distancing As States Across the Country Reopen for Business


As states across the country begin to reopen, a new model in the workforce is emerging. Social distancing is the new normal and this means smaller or reduced work forces. We are even seeing the elimination of safety monitors to reduce the number of workers on site and improve safety for workers. These changes will require an innovative and efficient approach to your safety plans and programs. Leading Edge Safety has always made fall protection the top priority and has many products that can help eliminate the need for safety monitors and increase worker safety as we get back to full speed.

Social Distancing in Commercial Roofing

States will start a gradual process of economic recovery that will evolve based on changing situations in local jurisdictions. As an industry, commercial roofing employers and their team must continue working together through the different stages of economic and community recovery. Critical infrastructure workers must follow social distancing rules and keep to teams smaller than 10.

Companies that have implemented the use of Leading Edge Safety products have seen fall rates decrease by 90%, recorded incident rates decrease by 92% and insurance rates decrease up to 30%.

Fall Protection Solutions

Mobile Fall Protection
With three different size mobile fall carts, Leading Edge revolutionized the fall protection industry  with mobile fall carts, to provide mobile anchor points where this is often no other option for fall protection. These mobile fall carts are designed to provide a simple, mobile anchor point with the added convenience of storage to keep your tools and supplies readily available.  As workers move along the leading edge, so does your anchor point. If a fall occurs, the patented mobile anchor point engages to arrest the fall.
