Master Lock Provides Best Practice Solution with New Confined Space Covers
Milwaukee, Wis. — Dec. 16, 2014 – Master Lock Safety Solutions has introduced three new Confined Space Cover models that are designed to protect affected employees from various dangers of confined spaces.
This best-practice solution is available in four different sizes (Small to X-Large) and exceeds the OSHA 29CFR 1910.146 standard for Permit Required Confined Space by providing required signage and effective barrier protection.
“Every year there are multiple serious injuries and fatalities associated with confined spaces. Our new Confined Space Covers will provide increased peace of mind for employers in many different industries by providing a barrier to entry when the open confined space is unattended,” remarked Matt Dudgeon, global senior product and marketing manager for Master Lock.
“These covers clearly display OSHA-required ‘Danger’ signage to alert workers of the confined space and the dangers that reside within. They work well in extreme environments and help protect against animal infestation and guard against litter and debris.”
Previewed at the National Safety Congress & Expo in September, the covers sparked a lot of interest and high praise from attendees. Manufactured from UV-treated polyester or silicone-coated fiberglass materials, these durable covers can easily be cleaned and stored. Four different sizes are available to fit standard man-ways ranging in diameter from 20 to 39 inches.
