Does your facility have a Fire Extinguisher Storage and management process?

Over the last 30 years, I visited hundreds of our clients’ facilities, workshops, railyards, and job sites, and the progress in making our industrial work environments safer has been significant. So here at Blue SteelCo, we are proud to assist our customers and help make their workspaces safe and more organized, and efficient.

We developed our fire extinguisher rack to reduce the trip hazards from the emptied or outdated bottles lying around the property. OSHA continues to report for 2021 Fall Protection Citations and Slip/Fall injuries are at the top of the list.  The discharged extinguishers could be mistaken for a charged unit should a fire erupt, and that could result in injuries to your workers.

We spoke to plant managers, safety supervisors, maintenance managers, and others, we developed our plan for the perfect fire extinguisher rack.

  1.  The Fire Extinguisher Rack must hold multiple bottles; this makes the accumulation of expired, discharged, and empty fire extinguishers organized and effective.
  2.  Forklift access makes transporting empty extinguishers to a refill location, and full extinguishers for distribution in large yards or facilities a snap.
  3.  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.

Steel Shop Carts

Industrial Grade Steel Shop Carts

You bought something new and it broke already?

Yes, we all have had the “CHEAP JUNK!” thought about something we have purchased, maybe you’ve had that thought this week about your tools and equipment in your shop, perhaps your steel shop cart?

It seems like all the talk about the “throw-away” society has been around for decades, nothing new to see here, many times we don’t even return it for credit, just toss it away and buy a new one.

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, hey do you know any railroaders, they can be really rough on equipment.  If you don’t know, it is a harsh environment, no not the people, the work is hard and everything is heavy. Empty Railcars weigh 25-30 Tons and Locomotives Weigh 200+ Tons.

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.

Stuck injector sleeve?

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.

Use our hanging tool caddy to keep parts and tools handy.

Conex Box Stairs

Conex Box Stairs / Shipping Container Stairs

OSHA Handrail and Stair Safety

Shipping Containers are upcycled for mobile offices, storage, work areas as well as Tiny Homes.

We custom build Conex Box Stairs with platforms for safe access for our customers that have converted them to mobile offices.

The name, ConEx, which is the term our Military customers used is short for, “container express”, they used them because they are built with Corten Steel for corrosion resistance are very secure to keep whatever is locked inside safe!

When you have foot traffic entering and exiting any elevated door, you have a typical slip, fall danger for your workers.

The Report is in.

The Report is in on our Galvanized Steel Pegboard.

This stuff is heavy-duty!!

With all the talk about all the big things going on today, we figured we could take some time to clear up something.  Our Industry Standard 12 Galvanised Steel pegboard along with the heavy-duty custom hangers we manufacture are one of our most popular products with heavy industry because so many “homeowner” type products are being re-marketed industrial companies and are not up to the task, we decided to go big.  Take a look at our  Steel Storage Cabinets and the Wall Mounted pegboards, they are all geared toward 5S tool organization for the industry sector.  That’s why we call it the “industry standard” the others just can’t hold up.

Just how tough is it? Well here is a photo of about 85+ pounds hanging in the same area of the mounted board.  The pegboard panel and hangers are built to be used in a heavy shop environment.

Is it time to upgrade your shop or tool room?  Give us a call or email.

Collapsible Handrails

Collapsible Handrails for Industrial Shop Safety

Most Slips, Trips, and Falls are preventable!

Yet are still responsible for one-third of workplace injuries and deaths.

Stairs without handrails

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
