Hilmerson Safety Services, Inc. has announced that Mortenson Construction will be utilizing Hilmerson Safety Rail Systems™ to protect workers at height and improve site safety and efficiency. 

ST. PAUL, Minnesota. — August 1, 2017 — Mortenson Construction has partnered with Hilmerson Safety to deploy a patent-pending fall protection solution to improve safety, efficiency, and minimize waste at the Allianz Field construction project.

Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ is a reusable engineered guardrail system designed to prevent falls in the construction industry. Unlike traditional wooden guardrails, the Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ deploys in minutes instead of the hours. When a project is completed, the guardrail system easily disassembles and can be reused for the entire life of the product. The engineered galvanized steel guardrails require zero ongoing maintenance, are built to last, and exceed OSHA requirements. The partnership with Hilmerson Safety Services complements Mortenson’s “Zero Injury” approach to safety.

“We are thrilled to partner with Mortenson and provide their team with this innovative and lean safety product.” said Debra Hilmerson, President & CEO, Hilmerson Safety® Services. “Their use of this product is yet another example of their dedication to sending workers home safely, and we are very proud to support those efforts.”
