Reduce Insurance Costs

Falls from great heights resulting from lack of or improper fall protection specifically in regards to the framing process, plague the wood frame construction industry.  These claims normally have the largest exposure associated with them for the General Contractor andSub Contractor alike.  Even with contractual indemnity clauses (action over claims) the developer/builder remains exposed to these high dollar suits when the sub-contractor’s general liability policy runs out of coverage.  So even though the sub-contractor has tendered the defense for the General Contractor, these high dollar claims still loom over the GC causing an exposure.

Your insurance carrier realizes this fact and takes it into account when writing the general liability policy for projects.  Insurance carriers provide scheduled credits to their clients to differentiate from a General Contractor that is exposed to less risk than another.  Examples include, past claim history, length of time in business, location of doing business and the quality of their SAFETY PROGRAM.

Even though we can’t change the length of time in business and the location of the project, using the Safety Pole system during the framing process will have a great impact on the scheduled credits received for the project.

  1.  Using the Safety Pole system will greatly reduce falls from heights.
  2. When a fall does happen and the worker is utilizing the Safety Pole system the resulting injury is minimal and most claims will rarely reach a point beyond the indemnity coverage.
  3. When showing the Safety Pole system on your jobsites, an insurance carrier’s loss prevention specialists will be able to see the value and innovation that the General Contractor is using to reduce claims.  Thus, receiving a superior safety program rating.

Over time there will be a positive effect on past claim history.  Increasing scheduled credits in future years, since there will be a reduction in claims while using the Safety Pole system.  This impact will be immediate for the following project/year since insurance companies’ weight the most recent 3 years of claim history the highest.

Discourage OSHA visits

Outside of the insurance benefit that the General Contractor will receive, the Safety Pole System will also cause a pronounced reduction in OSHA fines.  Lack of adequate fall protection fines range from $2,000 to $45,000 per visit.  OSHA has recognized the Safety Pole system as one of the best fall protection solutions available to wood framers.  It has been proven that a jobsite using the Safety Pole system receives less OSHA visits than one that does not.  So utilizing the Safety Pole System will also have a subsidizing impact on other possibly received OSHA violations and fines besides fall protection.

Easy to Use – Easy to Inspect

The nature of our fall protection system that moves the anchor point above the workers head allows for ease of inspection. As well allowing the framer to work as he always has…Walking the top plate OK!  Working on leading edges OK!

Safety Pole System has simplified training…No more different rules for different locations….No more walking up to each and every person working on the top plate and deck to see if their fall protection lanyard is properly attached to the anchor point.  No more individual examinations of the rope grab to ensure it is the correct length.

Just look up and see if the workforce is attached to the system.  The rules are simple.
