Protecting your workers from fall hazards during routine rooftop maintenance takes a comprehensive approach to fall protection. At Hilmerson Safety Services we will work with you to survey your rooftop, understand your unique challenges, and develop a site specific plan to protect your workers and avoid costly OSHA fines.

  • Provide various fall prevention solutions to meet your specific needs.
  • Develop a competitive cost estimate for Fall Prevention Solutions.
  • Assist with obtaining an OSHA grant where application to subsidize the cost for implementing Fall Prevention Solutions.
