W.E. O’Neil Construction wanted a robust, OSHA compliant guardrail system to protect workers and trade partners from falls from heights. They were looking for a simple, robust, construction-grade system™ that was easy to install, stack, store, ship and reuse on future projects. Most importantly, the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ supports W.E. O’Neil’s green and sustainable building practices that deliver these goals:
- Reduced operating costs
- Conservation of natural resources
- Optimized equipment life-cycle
- Enhanced occupant comfort and health
- Increased productivity
- Improved air and water quality
- Reduced waste
Previously W.E. O’Neil Construction was renting other steel guardrail systems or building their own 2×4 guardrail systems for leading edge fall protection. The option to purchase Hilmerson’s guardrail system was advantageous as they will bring the system in-house allowing them to reuse and re-rent for 15+ years. Thus, creating a new company revenue stream that saves time and money on the job site.
