Are Hole Covers Worth Having On The Jobsite?

Are PVC hole covers worth it on the job site? After all, they can be expensive, and some are a hassle to install. But the truth is, they are essential for construction sites. It’s the law that you use them in your workplace or

OSHA Is Clear: Floor Covers Are Essential

According to OSHA Standard 1926.501(b)(4)(ii),

“Each employee on a walking/working surface shall be protected from tripping in or stepping into or through holes by covers.”

Equipping your workplace with the proper protections keeps your operations OSHA-compliant.

You Should Even Shield Smaller Gaps With Floor Covers

OSHA defines a floor hole as any gap larger than 2 inches wide on any walking surface and working surface. Even small openings such as these can be a serious trip hazard. In addition, OSHA requires that every floor hole guar must be able to withstand at least twice the weight of personnel, materials, and equipment that is imposed upon it at any time.

Protect Your Employees & Your Business

Protective shields help keep the job site safe. Nobody wants anyone to trip over a small opening or fall into a larger one, getting seriously injured. Hole covers provide a barrier that helps prevent accidents, keep your employees safe on the job, and help you avoid costly workers’ compensation claims or injury-related lawsuits.
