A mezzanine is an intermediate floor in a building which is partly open to the double-height ceilinged floor below, or which does not extend over the whole floor space of the building. Mezzanines that aren’t adequately protected present a high risk. People can fall off the edge or fall when accessing the level.
Mezzanines are used in warehouses, offices, libraries, factories, and other workplaces for manufacturing, storage, and office space purposes. It is very important that mezzanine floors are constructed appropriately in the first place and mezzanine safety measures are taken to prevent accidents.
Before using a mezzanine, we recommend conducting a risk assessment in order to identify if the floor level is safe to access. The edges of the mezzanine should be protected to ensure that personnel and visitors are unable to fall.
Many warehouse mezzanines are used to store larger items or palletised product. As such, mezzanines are often loaded by the use of forklifts. To accommodate this, guardrails are intersected by mezzanine loading gates. Mezzanine loading gates must be designed to allow access to stock at the same time as eliminating the risk of anyone falling.
