The technical side of fall prevention and fall arrest has moved away from simple strength issues and has embraced energy absorption as the fundamental principle governing the design and the performance.
It is of vital importance that in order to work as an effective system we ensure the following points are adhered to:
– Nets comply with BS EN 1263-1
– Rigging is carried out by riggers who are fully qualified
– Equipment is systematically maintained using modern lightweight safety nets fitted as close to the work position as possible by our own directly employed FASET trained riggers.
By fitting safety nets so close to the working level they prevent a fall causing personnel injury and also offer a collective level of protection, as such, they are an improvement on the use of harnesses and lanyards.
FASET is the trade association and training body for the safety net rigging and fall arrest industry, worldwide. FASET has been growing in membership as companies have begun to realise the benefits of being associated with the high standards represented by the association. All undergo a rigorous audit to ensure management systems are in place.
