Working at height can be very hazardous, so it is an employer’s duty to ensure their employees not only have access to the very best safety equipment but also receive adequate safety training. If you are a business who is thinking of installing or upgrading your rooftop safety measures then you will need to ensure you have the most up to date, effective and suitable fall arrest and fall protection equipment available.
One of the most important considerations when installing roof safety equipment at your business premises is that it should provide continuous hands free attachment. This will allow your operatives to move around the roof area freely and so be able to carry out all their tasks and duties in an efficient manner. One of the chief benefits of using horizontal rail systems is that they are designed with this consideration in mind.
Horizontal rail systems are flexible as they can be operated horizontally, vertically, and even around corners. This gives workers enormous freedom of movement yet guarantees their safety at all times. Horizontal rail systems are also one of the most efficient fall safety options as they allow multiple operatives to be safely attached at any one time. This can help workers to use their time more effectively as they do not need to wait around for other employees to prepare their equipment or finish their tasks.
