Safety Measures for Warehouse Mezzanines

A mezzanine level in a warehouse utilizes the space between the floor and the ceiling to add more usable square footage to a facility. It’s a great way to expand your warehouse without construction and for a fraction of the cost. You’ll want to work with an experienced mezzanine manufacturer and installation company like DAK Equipment & Engineering, though, because there are significant safety guidelines you’ll be required to follow for mezzanine levels. If you are found to be in violation of these safety guidelines, you could face big fines.

One of most important safety measure that must be taken on a warehouse mezzanine level are guardrails along the edge, officially known as a “fall protection system” by OSHA. These guardrails need to be tall enough to stop someone from accidentally stumbling over the edge and should be strong enough to withstand an impact without giving way. Some mezzanines will need other safety measures such as guards around ladders and gates at the stairs.

So what will your mezzanine level need? It’s best to leave that to the professionals. A company who has experience with mezzanine levels can tell you what safety equipment you’ll need to have in place to keep your workers safe and prevent OSHA violations. DAK Equipment can help you get the mezzanine that you need and make sure you have all of the safety equipment required in place. Give us a call today and talk to one of our experienced project managers about your mezzanine and safety needs!
