Collapsible Handrails

Collapsible Handrails for Industrial Shop Safety

Most Slips, Trips, and Falls are preventable!

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

Contact us.

Stairs without handrails are a trip-fall hazard

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 easy to operate with included handle for pulling into place to lower into the pit.

Blue Steel has developed a Collapsible handrail setup that is a first in work pit safety. The handrails easily lock into 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 single 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.

Blue Flag Safety

Railroad Worker Blue Flag Safety First

We are always looking for better ways to keep workers safe.  As new products are developed I’m always sketching and drawing concepts on my tablets at home for future reference.  Recently I came home to a new concept from my 5-year-old Granddaughter for a Blue Flag.  As you can tell she is very loving and thought hearts would make a good addition to SAFETY FIRST!! I agree, after all, it’s all about making sure we all go home safe to our family every day.   I hope we all teach them while they are young to work safely.





Black Tank Pull Handles

Black Tank Pull Handles

Emergency Pull Handles

This Stainless Steel pull handle is truly an Emergency Pull handle since if your black or grey tank is full, and the Plastic Pull Handle Breaks, you have and emergency on your hands.

The hook end is fashioned to hook on the existing stop nut on the metal shaft that is still present when the plastic T Handle has broken off.  We have made these for the Locomotive Service Crews for years.  It’s also a great item to keep in your RV for the “just in case” day comes when you’re traveling and the handle breaks.

Blue Flag Protection

Standard Blue Flag Protection

Must be used to comply with Blue Flag Rules per FRA218 Railroad Safety Equipment CFR 49 FRA 218

When you tag out on a windy day you can hardly hold on to the Blue Flag, our standard blue flags allow for wind cross flow, so they are much safer, you can also change out a bent panel with our bolt-together flags.


Flag Dimensions: 102″ Long Staff 1″ Square aluminum tube with radius corners for comfortable handling.

The Flag panel is lightweight aluminum .100 thick,  precision cut, powder coated with a reflective message applied.

This panel has holes and is much easier and safer to handle in the wind.

And several smaller holes across the bottom for worker tag out.

No burr handle with heavy-duty PVC shrink tubing at the grip area of the staff.

Blue SteelCo has bolt-on panels so you can replace them if needed.
