Best Industrial Safety Supplies in Louisiana
The Certex branch in Morgan City carries a wide variety of safety products including rigging equipment and lifting supplies. We also specialize in fall protection, providing not just the equipment you need, but comprehensive training for your workforce.
In addition to Morgan City, Certex also has Louisiana locations in Lafayette/Broussard, Houma, West Monroe and New Orleans. Because of the special lifting and rigging needs of Louisiana industries such as on-shore and off-shore drilling, Certex has developed a strong presence in the state. Our Morgan City branch opened over 20 years ago and services drilling clients such as Transocean. We also work with manufacturing companies including Noble, which produces premium building products.
These are just a sample of our clients and the industries we work with, as we provide safety products and services to companies across the state. No matter the size or scope of your project, our Morgan City team is ready to help you determine the products best suited for your job. You can count on the experienced staff, led by manager Mike Theriot, to meet your safety needs.
There are 34 Certex locations in the U.S. servicing 11 states from California to South Carolina. Certex is known for providing industries such as construction, mining, aerospace, utilities and on-shore/off-shore drilling with the equipment needed to ensure job sites and workers are safe. In addition, we are one of the few lifting product companies in the U.S. to offer Fall Protection and Rescue Training. We’ve been in business for over 50 years, which is why we’re a trusted source in Louisiana and around the country.
Fall Protection Equipment and Training
We offer a full curriculum of training on fall protection equipment to ensure the safety and productivity of your crew. We are members of the ITI Training network which provides world-class crane and rigging training to customers.
We can provide training right on your job site in Louisiana. We also have two state-of-the-art safety training facilities in Tucson AZ and Bakersfield CA. There your team will experience 8 hours of working with equipment from over 20 different manufacturers. The modern, climate-controlled environment creates ideal surroundings for learning and every course meets or exceeds applicable ANSI Z359, OSHA Sub Part M, CSA and Manufacturers requirements.
If sending your team to Tucson AZ or Bakersfield CA isn’t an option, take advantage of the training our Morgan City team can provide at your location. We also offer expert consulting, rescue plans and hazard analysis.
Lifting Products and Rigging Supplies
Are you looking for quality lifting and rigging products? Morgan City and all our Louisiana locations carry a large selection of products such as lifting devices and specialty hooks. We also carry several types of hoists and load limiters, including puller hoists, cyclone hand chain hoists and electric chain hoists. Our electric chain hoists made by Lodestar offer power, flexibility and several important safety features.
Do you need wire rope and accessories? We have those too. Wire rope strands are designed with various combinations of wires and wire sizes to produce the desired resistance to fatigue and abrasion. It’s important to select the correct wire rope needed for each job. You can rely on the knowledgeable staff at Certex Morgan City to match the job requirements with the optimum combination of wire rope properties.
We also carry wire rope slings, wire mesh slings and nylon web slings. Wire rope slings, sometimes referred to as wire cable slings, are more robust and durable than nylon slings and have higher temperature limits. Wire mesh slings are used in industries where loads can be abrasive or tend to cut web slings. On the other hand, nylon web slings will not damage or scratch the surfaces of your products being lifted.
