FALL ARREST SYSTEMS
Falls from heights is a significant problem resulting in serious injury or death. Therefore managing the risk of a fall in the work place is critical. Any work that might involve a person falling more that two metres is considered high risk, this is not only directed at commercial construction work but also includes housing construction work as well.
Any time a fall does happen though, it is important that it is a controlled fall. This is done by energy absorption, through fall arrest systems.
