Vehicle Fall Prevention is a critical aspect of ensuring the safety and well-being of personnel engaged in the maintenance, loading, and unloading of large vehicles. At Heightsafe, we understand the unique challenges posed by working at height in the context of vehicles, such as tall trailers, HGVs, and waggons. Our mission is to provide bespoke Fall Prevention Solutions that not only meet industry standards but also minimise the risks associated with these tasks.
The Need for Vehicle Fall Prevention
Working at height within the realm of vehicles poses significant risks to personnel. Falls from these heights can result in severe injuries or even fatalities, impacting both the individual worker and the employer. It’s alarming to note that the injury rate among transport workers due to falling from vehicles is four times higher than the average for all height workers. Moreover, the severity of these injuries is nearly double that of other injury claims, with many incidents occurring during routine trailer maintenance.
To mitigate the risk of falls from vehicles, it is essential to assess and control these risks effectively. Heightsafe offers a comprehensive range of Fall Prevention Solutions, tailored to meet the specific safety requirements of your vehicles. These solutions include:
- Overhead Fall Arrest Tracks: These tracks provide continuous fall protection and allow workers to move safely while working on top of vehicles. They are designed to arrest falls and minimise the risk of injury.
- Edge Protection Systems: These systems create safe zones around the edges of vehicles, ensuring that personnel can work securely without the risk of falling.
By investing in these Fall Prevention Solutions, you not only enhance worker safety but also demonstrate your commitment to fulfilling legal and moral responsibilities. Creating a safe working environment is not just a legal requirement, but it’s also essential for the well-being and productivity of your team.
