When working at height, companies need to be careful that they comply with the current Health and Safety Regulations, as outlined by the Government in the 2005 brief. Fall protection is crucial to ensure employees’ safety, especially when considering that in the period between 2001-02, 47% of construction worker fatalities occurred due to a fall from height because of inadequate fall arrest measures.
During the same period, approximately 14,000 construction employees were injured due to height-related accidents in the workplace. Regulations were enforced to help curb this trend, which is why all construction companies today are required to have fall arrest systems in place that meet national standards.
At Heightsafe Systems, we have a wide variety of fall protection measures for companies who are involved with construction. We have a large selection of guardrails – from a standard guardrail to a more-permanent topfix guardrail – eyebolts and eyebolt certification practices, roof ladders and ladder systems and walkways.
Whatever your construction requirements, we work closely with designers, architects, quantity surveyors and contractors to ensure the safest possible service is delivered. On top of this, all of our products come with a 25-year guarantee which covers performance and corrosion resistance.
Providing fall protection solutions isn’t all we do. We test and certify load-bearing eyebolts to British standards and are also prominent in safety line retesting. All of your fall protection systems must be retested by law every twelve months without fail. We provide these services and more at Heightsafe Systems, to find out more about our products and fall arrest solutions, visit our website.
