NOPSEMA investigations of dangerous occurrences during non-routine lifting and rigging activities, which resulted in dropped objects and failed rigging equipment, have identified a trend in the absence of effective lifting and/or rigging plans.
The Protecta Pro Welders range provides compliant fall protection safety harnesses and lanyards for use in hot work environments.
In the wake of last night's ABC 7.30 program on falls from height, the Working At Heights Association has a warning: “If you’re counting on a harness attached to an anchor system to save your life when you fall from a roof, you need to know that many roof anchors don’t meet the most basic safety standards.”
Let's face it - accidental falls on the job happen. Even workers with extensive working-at-heights experience can lose their balance, trip or misstep. The danger of falling at height is real and can bring devastating consequences.
The Honeywell Miller AirCore range of lightweight, full-body harnesses is designed with breathable, open-core padding technology to provide optimal airflow, while reducing heat and moisture entrapment, to keep workers drier and cooler.
The Nano-Lok edge self-retracting lifeline (SRL) is engineered for both foot level tie-off and sharp-edge applications.
The revised Australian Standard AS1657 for fixed ladders, platforms and walkways released in October 2013 plugs some serious holes. Guard rails made of rubber, for example, are now explicitly unacceptable.
How do you provide and install user-friendly roof access systems that not only adapt to existing equipment but can also match a uniquely curved roof profile? The guardrail solution recently installed at a busy suburban shopping centre in Victoria required innovative thinking, products and design.
Pro 3 Products' patented Dropped Object Prevention System can be quickly and safely retrofitted to existing handrails, stairs and platforms, providing a permanent life-saving solution against the risk of drops injuries and falls from height for employees and contractors.
