Safety Anchor Post System® is a temporary guardrail safety device used in commercial contruction projects. SAPS are
engineered with permanent D-rings on the guardrail posts for tie–off even in the most precarious situations.
In today’s safety climate, fall arrest is paramount. Our utility patent integrates temporary guardrails for the protection
of the non–permitted with a “D” ring for tie–off. The Rotatable “D” ring has a 5:1 ratio.
All SAPS temporary guardrails install and remove in under a minute and are 100% reusable. An embedded anchor allows for
installation and removal of the temporary guardrails without the need for any tools, nails or screws.
The State of California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board "believes that if a guardrail has been designed (engineered) to meet the strength requirement stated in section 1670(b)(10) by a registered engineer, that such point of attachment meets the definition of “anchorage” in section 1504 of the CSO, and therefore is acceptable for use as a “…secure point of attachment…” for an employee’s PFA."

In an article entitled "Controversy: Should Anchor Tie-Offs Be Allowed For Fall Protection?" the November 14, 2014 issue of theCal-OSHA Reporter® said, "Jose M. Carrillo, CEO of Elk Grove's Carrillo Handrail Systems, has petitioned the Cal/OSHA Standards Board to 'take into account designs' such as his in the relevant standard." OSHA regulations prohibit personal fall arrest systems from being attached to guardrails.
The article continues, "He seeks an exception to the safety order to allow systems that are pre-engineered and meet Cal/OSHA strength and design requirements."
The article concludes with these words: "Carrillo tells Cal-OSHA Reporter, 'People would likely tie off if it was easier or more available. It doesn't make sense to me. We want to protect, but we have the red tape.'" Read the full article here>>
