    I have noticed that the upper platforms in the buildings in my area are having the chains removed and these yellow gates are replacing them.

    These chains have been around for years. I always thought they were a little cheesy and inadequate.

    Does anyone know what brought this change about?

    Did someone get hurt?

    Sincerely,
    I

    Probably just a safety upgrade. And yes, probably because someone got hurt somewhere at some point.

    I am a long time member here on the BC.

    What is your purpose for this comment?

    It has nothing to do with the topic and it is a potential distraction to the topic and purpose of this thread.

    I would suggest you go to another sub-forum other than UPS discussions and start a discussion thread about what a troll you think Integrity is.

    Sincerely,
    I

    The gates up by the pickoffs up in the rafters have been used for years in my hub. It's standard but not everywhere has been retrofitted I'm guessing. There was only one work position in the building that was still a chain. What do you care about why safety measures are upgraded iTroll? The chains weren't safe because some boneheads weren't latching them.

    You'd have to have been here a while to appreciate Integrity. He's a one-man band with a troll level registering over 9000.

    TooTechie,

    Were the gates in your hubs yellow, either square or rectangular in shape and equipped with a mid-rail?

    If not, what did they look like, please describe.

    Are you in a large hub or small hub?

    I care because I am interested in safety, I have thought the chains were inadequate and I want know what motivated the spending of dollars like this.

    The unfortunate reality is that large companies often don't spend dollars like this until someone is hurt or killed.

    I am not saying that is the case here, but I was hoping find out what was behind the change.

    Sincerely,
    I

    Harry appreciates Integrity all the same. Troll or no, Harry thinks Integrity is a swell person. In fact, Harry is glad to see Integrity posting again.

    Harry was starting to worry about Integrity.

    Someone deemed them inadequate for safety and as such when the chains need to be fixed at my location they're just replacing them with the gates you described. As far as I know no one got hurt, but myself I never felt safe with them. Some of the chains went down to my mid thigh so if I got knocked back into them I was probably going over.
