A Mansafe System, also known as a Safety Line System, is more than just a set of components – it’s a lifeline for workers navigating the challenges of elevated workspaces. This comprehensive solution combines stainless steel wire rope, sturdy posts, and precision fixings to provide a tested, approved, and meticulously inspected avenue for safe access when working at heights.
Why Choose Mansafe Systems?
Mansafe Systems are designed to adapt to diverse scenarios, offering horizontal, vertical, and overhead configurations. This adaptability ensures that regardless of the work environment, be it rooftops or industrial structures, a tailored solution can be implemented to meet specific needs.
- Tailored configurations to suit your unique work environment
- Fall arrest and fall restraint options for comprehensive safety
- Compliance with industry standards for your peace of mind
- Rigorous testing and inspection to ensure unwavering reliability
Fall Arrest: Navigating Risk, Limiting Impact
The Fall Arrest configuration within a Mansafe System empowers workers to access areas of a roof that lie tantalisingly close to potential fall hazards. This configuration is engineered to be responsive in the face of danger. In the unfortunate event of a fall, the system kicks into action, dramatically curtailing the distance and consequences of the fall. In collaboration with appropriate fall protection personal protective equipment (PPE), this configuration acts as a safeguard against accidents. Furthermore, the system’s steadfast connection to the roof structure remains unshaken, enabling effective rescue operations or self-rescue procedures.
Fall Restraint: A Zone of Safety
Fall Restraint systems represent a proactive approach to safety. Positioned at a distance of 2.3 metres or more from fall hazards, these systems proactively prevent users from entering dangerous zones. Complemented by a recommended 2-metre lanyard, they effectively create an impregnable barrier against accidental entries into the fall zone. The rigorous testing standards these systems adhere to ensure that they not only stand strong against deliberate misuse but also guard against unintentional errors, such as improper rope and grab usage.
Meeting the Standards
Legislation and standards play a pivotal role in the world of Mansafe Systems. Regular testing and inspection, mandated at least once every 12 months, ensures the integrity and compliance of these systems. Standards like BS EN 795:2012, PD CEN/TS 16415:2013, and BS 7883:2019 are the cornerstones on which these systems are built. Such adherence guarantees the highest level of protection for workers who depend on these systems for their safety.
