Falls from height are the most prominent cause of fatal injury on construction sites. Over 4,000 major injuries are reported each year by the construction industry, with 50% of these involving falls from height. These injuries are preventable.
Tradesmen are often required to work from height on construction sites and therefore require safety training and precautions to prevent injuries, and in some cases, fatalities.
We have been developing our fall arrest equipment for the past 10 years, working with some of the largest house builders across the country. Using fall arrest bags minimises the risk of injury in the event of a worker falling from height. They are designed to provide a cushioned landing that absorbs the weight of the fall without causing major injury. Using fall arrest bags allows workers to work harness-free, giving them greater freedom of movement to handle tools and other materials.
