The WireCrafters Safety Solutions
Driver Access Cages
Driver Access Cages are designed to secure and control access to your warehouse or distribution center. These cages prevent unauthorized entry, protect valuable inventory, and ensure the safety of your employees and visitors. By installing Driver Access Cages, you can monitor and control who enters your facility, reducing the risk of accidents or theft.
RackBack Pallet Rack Backing Panels
RackBack Pallet Rack Backing Panels are an essential safety feature in any warehouse that uses pallet racking. These panels prevent items from falling off the back of the racks, protecting workers and property from potential accidents or damage. By installing RackBack panels, you can create a safer environment for your employees while also keeping your inventory secure.
Industrial GuardRail systems are designed to protect people, machinery, and property from accidents involving forklifts, sweepers, or other moving facility equipment. Our GuardRail systems are tested to withstand the impact of a 10,000-pound load moving at 4 miles per hour. By installing GuardRail in your warehouse, you can create a strong barrier around critical equipment or aisle ways, preventing accidents and damage.
Machine Guarding is an essential safety measure in any facility that uses heavy machinery or automated equipment. Our machine guarding systems protect workers from dangerous moving parts, flying debris, and other potential hazards. By installing WireCrafters Machine Guarding, you can help prevent workplace injuries and ensure the safety of your employees.
The Importance of Employee Safety
According to recent OSHA statistics, forklift accidents account for 85 deaths and 34,900 serious injuries each year in the United States. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there were approximately 2,000 amputations and over 7,000 other severe machine-related injuries in 2019 alone. These alarming numbers emphasize the importance of prioritizing safety in your warehouse. Your employees are your most valuable asset, and it's crucial to take proactive measures to protect them from harm.
