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.’
Fall protection can create a minefield of complexities and hazards and should only be carried out by trained, competent and authorised people. We hope that our web site will provide you with the guidance on what you need to know, what to do and how to do it.
