We Can Help With Fall Protection
Fall protection is OSHA’s number one cited safety violation, but the good news is it can be avoided with the help of a platform handrail system. AK Material Handling Systems offers several options of safety rails to protect workers from falling.
Using the Right Ladder for the Job
Ladders are one of the most common tools used in a warehouse setting but it’s very important they are used right. According to OSHA in order to be considered safe, all self-supporting and portable non-self-supporting ladders must be able to support at least four times the maximum intended load. At AK Material Handling Systems we carry customized ladder designs, machine stands, stair products, and conveyor crossovers, all intended to make your work environment safer and to comply with OSHA’s standards.

Number 10 on OSHA’s list is the failure to use proper machine guarding. AK Material Handling Systems carries the right guardrails to protect your machinery. These guardrails offer a clear and visible warning sign to forklift operators as well as durable protection in the event of a collision.
