Falls from height remain one of the most common causes of injury and fatality at work accounting for nearly 30% of injuries to workers. It is a stark reality that in an age where working at height is commonplace that fall protection measures still need to be much more effective.
According to fall protection manufacturers a three pronged approach to fall protection is required, namely engineering innovation, compliance & regulations and representative test methods.
‘Scaffolds, handrails, barriers and movable platforms can be constructed to protect workers employed at heights. Where these devices are impractical, personal fall protection equipment such as full body harnesses, lanyards and retractable lifelines may be used.’
Throughout the site you will find links that will return you to areas where we can facilitate any of your requirements, whether that be design, supply, install, recertification or the simple supply of personal protection equipment (PPE).
