Mass Transit maintenance operations and facilities routinely expose workers to fall hazards. When servicing buses, subway cars, and other transit equipment, workers are exposed to falls over open edges, working at heights, and maneuvering around obstructions. Fall Protection Systems has provided turnkey fall protection systems for over 20 years with experience in customizing fall prevention and protection solutions for transit facilities.
FPS led the industry to the overhead rigid rail fall protection standard. Whether permanent or portable, overhead rigid rail fall protection systems provide the highest degree of mobility and safety in fall protection. For mass transit applications, our patented TD3 truss trolley rail, S-Beam, or enclosed track can be installed to existing facility supports, reducing both the cost and the footprint of the system. Our custom-engineered solutions can accommodate most any obstruction including piping, maintenance pits, lift racks, ductwork, hoists, fans, and low clearance.
Another common fall hazard while working on or near transit vehicles are open transit car doorways. Fall Protection Systems manufactures a Safety Gate specifically designed to temporarily guard open transit doorways. Gates are lightweight, portable, and easy to install.

OSHA requires that employers protect workers from fall hazards along unprotected sides or edges that are at least four feet above a lower level. Mass transit operations expose workers to a variety of hazards including working at heights, open edge exposure, and industrial equipment maneuvering. FPS can provide customized solutions for any of these fall hazard exposures.
