Wally J. Staples Builders: Brunswick, Maine
Wally J. Staples values the people on his team. His company, Wally J. Staples Builders in Brunswick, Maine, has been building custom homes since 1993, and during that time, he has worked hard to keep his longtime employees safe and satisfied with their jobs. To deal with the current shortage of tradespeople, Staples took the unique step of constructing a wood shop so that his carpenters could do more of their work indoors before installing custom cabinetry, etc., on site. It was the design of this new facility that led Staples to PS Safety Access™ and its EdgeSafe® Smart Gate.
CHI St. Alexius Health: Bismarck, North Dakota
CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck, North Dakota, was struggling with a safety solution that was causing a problem of its own. The busy regional hospital was employing gates on various stairwells in order to keep patients and staff safe, but the gates themselves closed with a deafening “clang” that echoed through the building. CHI St. Alexius needed gates that did their job without disrupting staff or patients.
Cummings Ag Inc.: Cummings, North Dakota
In the summer of 2017, Cummings Ag, a North Dakota bean and seed processor, realized that the frequently used ladder system in its facility needed an upgrade to keep up with industry standards. With future OSHA inspections on the horizon and the safety of employees in mind, leadership at Cummings Ag decided to make the needed improvements.
After some research, Cummings Ag decided to put its trust in PS Safety Access™ to resolve its ladder safety issues. The company was already happy with several PS Access Solutions™ doors in the facility, so it made sense to stay in the PS Industries® family.
Within Cummings Ag’s 20,000-square-foot facility, employees regularly used several permanent in-place ladders and a fairly extensive catwalk system. As a result, Cummings Ag wanted a solution that would maintain the functionality of the ladders while also improving safety for users and meeting all necessary OSHA safety requirements.
