With boots on the ground, hanging with the hard working men and women in the field and providing solutions to common problems found on construction sites. Hilmerson Safety® assisted industry leader Mortenson with deploying two 3M DBI-SALA® FlexiGuard™ M100 Modular Jib Systems or “sky hooks” at Climate Pledge Arena. Mortenson was looking for a user-friendly, robust modular fall protection jib system that could be easily transported throughout the jobsite for various working heights tasks. The 3M DBI-SALA® FlexiGuard™ M100 allows a worker to work at heights safely, hands-free, all while being protected from falls. With Hilmerson’s help, Mortenson’s team learned how to inspect, maintain and use the system properly, improving jobsite safety.
Mortenson also deployed 2,400 lf of the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ transported by way of our cart “kits” and delivered from a previous Mortenson jobsite. Our durable, galvanized and lean rails and kits are reusable and last 15+ years.
“Hilmerson Safety Rails are robust and we get fewer questions about how the system should be installed and used,” says Bune. “We never have to put a tape measure to them because they are at OSHA-compliant height. Because they are galvanized, they don’t rust and they hold up to repeated uses. With the weighted bases, we don’t have to patch holes afterward. And when we’re done, they’re easy to load onto the cart.”
