BLOG – Overhead Work Protection

At the west end of the project and portions of the east end, the majority of the work is conducted over traffic. This work happens during the nighttime hours as a safety precaution for the traveling public. Due to heavy daytime traffic volumes, lane closures are implemented at night. Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires only one level of netting at the level of the work area. Our contractor took an additional safety measure and installed protective netting below the work area to catch smaller objects such as tools and bolts falling from the work platforms.
