The TRAM System for Fall Prevention
An ongoing risk the transport industry faces daily is the chance a tank related fall. Falls from heights are a major health and safety concern, and they occur with alarming frequency. Normal routine work on top of truck is a daily hazard. The TRAM system provides fall restraint or arrest protection for most rolling stock equipment. The system has an integrated, adjustable handhold for stability and confidence - falls don't happen. A waist harness is recommended in conjunction with the TRAM system, but the use of a harness is dictated by the market application and by customer preference. Standfast has a TRAM for your truck and can keep your workers safe throughout the course of the crucial jobs they perform.
Transport and Road
Falls from heights above 5 feet represent a major health and safety concern for the worldwide transport industry. The TRAM system provides fall restraint or arrest protection as well as an integrated, adjustable handhold providing stability and confidence for the operator.
Liquid and Dry-Powder Tankers
Standfast sold the first TRAM safety systems to a dry bulk fleet in the Midwest in 2009. Since then, Standfast has designed the TRAM system to fit onto numerous other applications including Liquid & Dry-Powder Tankers. Operators that need to access the top of truck for routine operation are particularly at risk of falls from potentially deadly heights. Data available from safety agencies show numerous records of serious injuries and deaths from tank falls over the last 10 years. Our unique safety system touches many diverse markets in over 23 countries.
The simplest and least costly truck fall restraint option is the conventional lifeline systems. While this option is cost effect it’s not without a lot of risk for the operator. It is easy for the system to snag on fittings on the top of the tanker, pulling the user off-balance and potentially accelerating their fall on to the tanker top. It is common if operators opt for no fall restraint versus the lifeline system. In contrast, if an operator connected to a TRAM did lose their footing while on the tanker top, they will quickly be brought back to a position of safety. There is no other safety system available that can offer the same level of protection as TRAM. For orders or inquiries, contact us.

Grain quality control
In addition to providing fall protection, the TRAM can also be used in grain quality control as it allows the user to access the top of the truck in complete safety to take grain samples for analysis and grading. For orders or inquires, contact us.
Concrete & Dry Bulk
The hazards of working on Concrete & Dry Bulk trucks are well-known to those in the industry. The fall risk from a concrete or dry bulk truck is greatly increased by dust and wind combined with the shaking motion of the platform. The existing handrails are too low to prevent a fall under hazardous conditions.
TRAM holds the worker securely in place while allowing the full range of movement required to complete all inspections, maintenance and cleaning tasks efficiently and effectively. No other safety system in the world offers the same level of protection. When connected to a TRAM, you cannot fall. Contact us for applications assistance contact us.
