The Miller Amax.2 full-body work-positioning harness is designed for working in suspension for long periods of time and engineered for safety and comfort, making it the most comfortable full body harness in the company’s fall protection range.
DBI-Sala’s flotation harness incorporates an integral Baltic Safety personal flotation device (PFD), commonly known as an inflatable life jacket, and is suitable for workers exposed to hazardous marine environments, giving fall protection, buoyancy protection and survival solutions.
Engineered to be attached to a steel or concrete structure and using a stanchion-style system, the Miller SkyGrip Temporary Horizontal Lifeline requires minimum effort to install and provides those working at height with continuous fall protection and horizontal mobility.
Capital Safety’s DBI-Sala has launched a range of fall protection products constructed from a specially designed textile called Repel technology webbing, providing a number of advantages over traditional webbing products used for fall protection. The technology in the finish forms a fine textile shell that gives a high level of water resistance, a natural self-cleaning effect and a durable protective function. Water or other substances such as oil or dirt simply run off its surface.
Uniline Safety Systems has launched a three-part, continuous roof safety package including RoofSafe anchors, cable and rail systems which will help combat the risks for workers at height while also assuring OHS compliance.
The Low-Pro height safety anchor points provide quick and easy retrofit installation to metal purlin structures suiting standard, corrugated and span deck roof profiles. The devices have a low visual impact and can be used as a primary abseil anchor point.
The Lad-Saf powered climb-assist system does not require a separate or secondary fall-protection system. This fall-arrest-rated, dual system simplifies safety and increases worker productivity by providing both climbing assistance and fall protection to workers ascending fixed-ladder systems within wind turbine towers.
The Miller ladder grip is designed to act as both a low-profile ladder bracket and a fall arrest anchor point for one person. The unit attaches permanently to the roof, holding the ladder in place and preventing it from moving or tipping over during use.
The Nomex/Kevlar high-temperature fall protection range consists of a harness and two shock-absorbing lanyard models designed for applications encountered in high-temperature work environments.
The LiftPod portable aerial work platform is designed to replace the ladder. Model FS80 features a larger work tray that is easier to fit and use and the tray attaches to the basket and keeps tools and materials within reach of the user.
The Miller by Sperian sharp-edge lanyards and sharp-edge Scorpion fall arrestors protect against sharp-edge hazards that lanyards and workers may be exposed to, should a fall take place over a sharp edge.
The Western Australian government is calling for public comment on a proposed guidance note on preventing falls from height in the agricultural sector.
A heavy haulage company was convicted over an incident where a worker was crushed while loading an elevated work platform onto the trailer of a truck.
