Tank Truck Fall Protection
2020 is about Safety, Don’t Forget about Falls.

Despite the universally heightened awareness regarding safety protocols throughout 2020, the tank-truck industry has been slow in terms of implementing fall protection. For drivers & employees getting atop the tank can be the most dangerous part of their job and this area of safety cannot be without a remedy.
Each year, countless falls, near-falls, serious injury and deaths occur because someone has a mishap on a ladder or while atop the tank. This is especially true during the access and egress from a ladder, and particularly so in slippery environments, such as oil and petroleum facilities, and in inclement weather.
The TRAM Safety System is a proven cost-effective way to ensure worker safety while being the most reliable and robust fall prevention system on the market. Compared to handrails and bi-line systems, TRAM is the only system that provides fall protection while on the ladder, where most falls occur. Reliable and easy to use, TRAM requires no regularly scheduled preventive maintenance and is the only approved ANSI and OSHA system for tanks. TRAM can be removed and reinstalled when retiring a tank from service and offers the very best warranty available for fall protection systems.
