Case Study: Berry Plastics Corporation, March 2016

Location: Hanover, MD

Problem Statement: To access Berry Plastic’s roof, one needed to climb thru a hatchway that was installed close to the roof edge. Once on the roof, one needed to navigate past 37 skylights that were unprotected fall hazards. According to OSHA Standards, 3 violations on Berry’s roof needed correction: (1) the roof edge near the hatchway needed railing, (2) the open hatchway needed railing, and (3) the skylights needed protection.  

Problem Resolution: Bob Radtke of Berry Corporation called on Safety Rail Source to provide fall protection solutions to protect workers and satisfy OSHA. In March of 2016, the following was delivered to Bob for installation: 37 NextGen Skylight Safety Screens Model STS4872G for skylights measuring 51.25” x 75.5” x 8”, one KeeHatch Railing System Model RHSR SS 3630, and 21 linear feet of KeeGuard Railing. The installation was simple and was completed in about 3 days.
