Safe-T-Stik XL allows a worker to be in a safer position, well away from the trench plate, trench, heavy equipment and other obstacles. Even more, Safe-T-Stik XL allows the worker to feel more confident by allowing him to have a better view of the entire work area and sure control of the load being hoisted.
Safe-T-Stik XL is built with FRP tube and fiberglass rod, both very light and strong and not a very good conductor of electricity. Our dual action swivle allows a worker freedom of movement in many situations without giving up any control. Our custom super magnet has a pull force of greater than 400 pounds and is easy to attach and remove from trench plate.
Why Should Your Company Use Safe-T-Stik
Complacency has no place in hazardous work environments where one mistake, one failure, one oversight can cause a serious injury or death. There have been serious injuries and many close calls when it comes to moving trench plate and road plate. There have also been many incidents where heavy equipment and property have been damaged, causing expensive repairs and delays.
Below are some direct quotes from an OSHA board member and long time safety manager of a national heavy equipment and traffic safety company.
Employers are required to instruct employees in the recognition and avoidance of unsafe conditions in order to control or eliminate hazards or other exposure to injury (29CFR1926.21(b)(2)). Handling and/or positioning large metal objects such as steel plates or trench shoring places workers in direct contact with hazards that can lead to serious catastrophic injury or death. The Safe-T-Stik XL allows workers to distance themselves from these danger zones while providing increased handling strength for better control and maximum productivity. The only true way to avoid the hazards created by these objects is to separate the worker from the risk. The Safe-T-Stik XL provides that separation with an increased level of safety that is unmatched by any other product.

Safe-T-Stik XL is an extremely affordable and useful tool when it comes to moving trench shields, shoring and other heavy objects requiring longer reach. One injury or accident can cost thousands of dollars, a serious one can cost hundreds of thousands.
