Background

Kee Safety was contacted in April 2020 by a San Francisco-based roofing contractor to discuss OSHA Standards following concern for the safety of employees servicing roofing around HVAC equipment at two Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory locations.

A site audit was undertaken, and working closely with Kee Safety’s Technical Group, solutions were designed and quoted.

With a combination of Safe Access Platforms, Kee Walk with Guardrail and Kee Hatch Railing, employees and contractors can safety access all areas of the roof.

  • Due to the current roofing material shortages, this contractor is actively pursuing similar applications where they can provide Kee Safety Safe Access solutions.
