Capital Safety has announced the launch of its DBI-Sala Delta Repel Breathing Apparatus (BA) full body harness range. The harnesses provide fall and breathing protection for a variety of industries where workers are required to carry out activities that involve simultaneous use of self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full body harnesses, to protect against falls from height in contaminated atmospheres.
Safemaster Height Safety Solutions has developed a temporary roof anchor for use on metal deck and corrugated sheeting roofs. It is suited to tradesmen who work on residential roofs which do not have permanent fall arrest systems installed.
The surface-mounted multidirectional FrogLink anchor has been designed to attach permanently to all metal profiles with a single row of attachment holes. Its low-profile reflective design is a plus for any commercial or residential enterprise wanting to maintain an aesthetically pleasing facade. Its dynamic design reduces the load back onto the structure and person attached to the anchor from 25.76 to 3.1kN. The anchor is tested and manufactured in accordance with the applicable Australia and New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1891.4 and is rated as a two-person anchor.
The TempLink has been designed for use where an anchor is required for a temporary period of time in a location that does not need to be revisited. The anchor is designed to absorb energy when a fall is arrested, minimising damage to the structure and reducing the risk of personal injury. The anchor can be used on a metal roof or a tile roof.

In most states, the law points to six-monthly inspections of anchor points and static lines but the answer in your circumstances might not be quite so straightforward.
A fall protection catalogue that features safety and product information to simplify the selection of the correct type of fall protection equipment in the workplace is now available.
