New safety standards for vertical arrest systems
How to ensure your equipment confirms to new EN safety standards
Tough new EN standards are now in force for vertical fall arrest systems. So how does your equipment measure up? Is it compliant? Or are you putting workers at risk – and risking your company’s bottom line and reputation at the same time?
When you’re responsible for the safety of workers climbing vertical structures like wind turbines and telecomms towers, there is a lot resting on your shoulders. It’s your responsibility to help make sure workers return home safely to their families at the end of the working day. And we appreciate that’s a big responsibility, because despite all the advances made in recent years in fall arrest systems, personal protection equipment and health and safety requirements, climbing tall structures remains seriously dangerous work.
