Over the last 30 years, I have visited hundreds of customer shops and job sites. The progress we have made making our industrial work environments safer has been significant. Blue Steel is proud of our part in helping our customers make their workspaces safe and more organized and efficient.
We developed our fire extinguisher rack to reduce the trip hazard with emptied or outdated bottles lying around the property. The extinguishers could also be mistaken for a charged unit if a fire erupted.
As we spoke to plant managers, safety supervisors, maintenance managers, and others, we developed our plan for the perfect fire extinguisher rack.
It must hold multiple bottles; now, the accumulation of expired and discharged bottles is effortless.
Fork pockets make moving it around the facility a snap.
Heavy Duty fabrication and durability, we fabricated our first units almost 20 years ago and are still in use. Our Industry Standard steel fabrication and zinc-rich primed and powder-coated finish provides a product suitable for any commercial or industrial facility.

Yet are still responsible for one-third of workplace injuries and deaths.
Workers needing access to a pit can quickly raise the collapsible handrails and enter the pit safely.
Do your pits comply with OSHA and local standards for stairwell safety.
Falls are one of the most common workplace injuries, and stairs present one of the biggest fall and injury risks on the job, so having a handrail for all stairwells is key to reducing injuries. You can install our Collapsible Handrails on most existing pit stairwells.
They are very is easy to operate with included handle for pulling into place to lower into the pit.
Blue Steel has developed a Collapsible handrail set up that is a first in work pit safety. The handrails easily lock in to place and release with our heavy-duty latching system.
Durable Construction with over a decade of installations being used every day.
The durable and corrosion-resistant stainless steel locking mechanism can withstand oil, chemicals, and other harsh workplace environment conditions. The rolling parts are UHMW, so they move smoothly into position; the handrails and wall channels have a durable powder-coated surface.
Many of our installations have been in service for over a decade without a failure. Our collapsible handrails are custom-built to install in your service pit correctly.
Make sure your company is OSHA Compliant and check your local code requirements also.
Have you ever used your shoe as a vice? You know, using your foot to hold something in place while twisting a wrench or using a hammer? How about while 5 feet high, on a running board that is only 24″ wide, with oily shoes, in a snowstorm, okay, I got carried away.
The point is with some thoughtful planning, we were able to remove three slip fall hazards and several motions for a safer and more efficient process in the shop with this new tool.
We all have had the “cheap junk” thought about something we have purchased, maybe you’ve had that thought this week? All the talk about the “throw-away” society has been around for decades, nothing new to see here.
My experience this week was a little different, I was visiting a customer facility for a new project when I ran into this product. It sure looks used, and it should, it has survived over 8 years of use at a locomotive repair shop. Do you know any railroaders? If you do you know, it is a harsh environment, no not the people, the work is hard and everything is heavy. Photo from November 2019
Now here is the photo from August 2011, the same casters, same paint job, a lot shinier. This is a great example of the value of a product. Anything that survives 8 years in a locomotive repair shop is doing pretty good. Blue Steel had strived for many years to provide an “Industrial Grade” product for our customers.
It sounds silly but when I saw that beat-up old cart, I just smiled.
Here are some concepts to finished product shipping photos. This is an elevated rail work platform for safe and easy access to the locomotive running board. It increases access options to the locomotives on tracks without fixed ramps.
One of our shops needed custom floor plates and barriers for new equipment installation. With heavy equipment traffic in this area, we needed to use some 3/4″ Steel Floorplate. With exposed plumbing, it was necessary to build heavy plate protectors to avoid damage from passing forklifts or other heavy machinery.
