Fast-Track Fall Protection Abatement Design


LJB provided safety design services to help Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) fulfill its mission of improving health and wellbeing by focusing on improving safety for its maintenance workers.

Leveraging its expertise in fall protection consulting and design, LJB has been assisting BSMH to proactively and systematically address fall hazards on building roofs throughout its network of acute care facilities in 4 states. LJB identified 1,800+ fall hazards at 45 BSMH facilities and then worked with BSMH to create a multi-year strategy to address the fall hazards.

LJB designed solutions to 18 hazards that present the most risk to the organization, helping BSMH mitigate 41% of its fall risk. LJB designed the solutions to these high-risk hazards on a fast-track schedule and provided construction administration services to ensure the systems were installed as intended to protect roof maintenance workers.
