We can assist in the design, supply, installation, and recertification of fall protection equipment as well as the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE).
There are many systems within the marketplace that simply ‘do not work’ and a vast number of companies that lack the training & understanding of fall protection and really shouldn’t be operating in the industry. In recent years there has been a vast number of companies that have ‘sprung up’ seeking profits over safety as well as labour supply companies that supply untrained and unskilled labour to the industry.
We are extremely proud to be associated on our page with leading recognised and reputable names in the industry, a testament to the trust that is instilled in our companies and we would like to thank them for being part of our vision.

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 guidance on what you need to know, what to do and how to do it.
