Ensure Compliance, Safety, and Reduce Risks
More than 1 million Americans injure themselves on stairs each year, according to the American Journal of Emergency Medicine.
OSHA and International Building Code (IBC) codes set strict standards for the design of stair treads, risers, handrails, and guardrails.
Non-compliance can result in lawsuits, fines, and discrimination charges. Not to mention – the risk of incident and injury that occurs with improperly designed stairs and ladders.
