Hilmerson Safety Services, Inc. has announced that Mortenson Construction will be utilizing Hilmerson Safety Rail Systems™ to protect workers at height and Current Cover™ to protect workers from electrical hazards.
ST. PAUL, Minnesota. — August 1, 2017 — Mortenson Construction has partnered with Hilmerson Safety Services to deploy two patent-pending solutions to improve safety on the Allianz Field construction project.
Hilmerson Safety Services, Inc. a professional safety services and consulting firm, will be providing Mortenson with Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ and Current Cover™.
Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is a reusable engineered guardrail system designed to prevent falls in the construction industry. Unlike traditional wooden guardrails, the Hilmerson Safety Rail System deploys in minutes instead of the hours. When a project completes, the guardrail system easily disassembles and can be reused for the entire life of the product. The engineered galvanized steel guardrails require zero ongoing maintenance, are built to last for 20+ years and exceed OSHA requirements.
Current Cover™ addresses a common problem on construction projects. Electrical receptacles and switches are often left without plastic covers to accommodate painting, wall covering and finish work. These uncovered receptacles expose workers to electrical hazards and leave contractors liable for significant fines. The Current Cover™ is a temporary safety cover with a VHB peel and stick adhesive backing that secures firmly to the receptacle tabs that allows construction workers to work safely around energized outlets, switches, and other electrical fixtures.
The partnership with Hilmerson Safety Services complements Mortenson’s “Zero Injury” approach to safety.
“We are thrilled to partner with Mortenson and provide their team with these cutting edge safety products.” said Debra Hilmerson, President & CEO, Hilmerson Safety Services, “Their use of these products is yet another example of their dedication to sending workers home safely, and we are very proud to support those efforts.”
