Capital Safety Gives Fall Safety a Personal Touch

Capital Safety, the Red Wing, Minn.-based fall protection company that includes DBI.SALA and Protecta, has launched a campaign that stresses the personal, familial value of staying safe on the job. “Tough Guys Tie Off’ is part of the campaign that is aimed at construction workers, the company’s North American marketing manager, Jennifer Usher, said today at the National Safety Congress.

“Much of the marketing material out there urges employees to tie off because not doing so could cause injury, death, or financial penalties to their employer,” Usher said. “We’re encouraging workers to think one step further: to think about the things they won’t be able to participate in or won’t be around for it they were to suffer a fall-related injury or worse.”

The campaign is intended to increase fall protection compliance rates, which are about 60 percent currently, according to the company.

Capital Safety introduced several new products at this conference. The Sealed-Blok™ self retracting lifeline for the oil and gas industry is one of them; it is a damage-resistant upgrade to a popular product that keeps dirt and grime out of the critical inner components, such as the brake, power spring, and energy absorber, said Jeff Halbach, Capital Safety’s North American communications manager. A vacuum anchor that weighs 19 pounds--about half as much as earlier versions--will appeal to the airline industry and other transportation industries, Halbach said.
