Work at height - is your risk assessment complete?

As part of your commitment to risk assessment, you are already aware that you have to protect your operative from the hazard of falls from height. These regulations apply to all workplaces and to all employees (also to the self-employed and employees of a third party). If you were to fully assess all the hazards and risks, then you should also have addressed the actions you require in the event of a worker becoming suspended.

How can I provide a rescue solution?

Gotcha will provide rescue solutions/provisions for all your staff who wear fall arrest harnesses with shock-absorbing lanyards as long as you are able to safely access their anchor point.

What exactly can the Gotcha do?

The idea of the Gotcha is to provide a rescue kit that will enable a rescuer to:

  • Attach a casualty who is suspended by a fall arrest lanyard
  • Raise the casualty in order to release their current attachment
  • Raise or lower the casualty to a point of safety
