This company decided to put the safety of their employees first and invested in a custom fall protection system. We built a railcar access stand with confined space retrieval davit for them. The access to the top railcar is now able to be done safely with the 48” aluminum guardrail system. The davit arm is rated for fall arrest and confined space retrieval for workers entering tankers.

Some of the features this rail car access stand has include:

  • Self closing gate at upper platform
  • Locking high capacity pneumatic wheels
  • Fork pockets for transportation
  • Levelling jacks for uneven terrain
