Rope Access techniques can now enable works, which previously may not have been possible using other conventional access methods, to be carried out safely. The equipment is lightweight and can be removed in rapid time, this flexibility and speed can make rope access a preferred method of access for many difficult sites allowing a variety of task to be undertaken.
One of the significant risks associated with rope access work is dropped objects. This risk is managed in many ways including the tethering of equipment and the operation of exclusion zones. These measures are largely passive.
An active measure is the use of safety netting to augment the other measures in place.
Safety Netting can be used to shroud a worksite or to act as a barrier to reduce risk for third parties.
To satisfy WHS requirements, protective barrier netting, protection from falling rocks or debris or to catch a person falling from heights, custom designed safety netting will provide the protection you need on a work site .
Safety nets have been used all over the world to prevent fatalities in work places working at heights and have worked effectively in reducing the number of fatalities over the years.
