Fall arrest safety with Safety Nets
Fall arrest Safety Nets are designed to protect employees working at height and those working below.
Preventing falls from height is a priority for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, it expects that work at height is actively managed, so people are not harmed. Doing nothing is not an option. The construction industry is one of the largest employers in New Zealand and holds the title of one of the highest proportions of injury claims. Nearly a third of serious harm accidents in the building industry come from falls or trips.
It is a health and safety requirement that employers must take all practical steps to ensure that no one is harmed while working, regardless of whether they are working at height for a short time or long time.
GAPrie Safety Nets are designed to deflect and absorb the energy of a fall so they reduce the likelihood of a person being injured. Whether you are working at height for a long time, or a good time, GAPrie Safety Nets allow employees to work at height without restricting movement and absorbing the impact of a fall.
You can’t put a cost on a life. GAPrie Safety Nets are designed to save lives, it’s that simple. Not only do we provide excellent fall arrest safety, our nets make it easy and economical.
3 Worksite fall concerns to consider
The dangers of working at height is compounded by the hazardous objects and surfaces common at worksites. Keep your workers safe from impact and impalement injuries due to worksite falls.
Fall arrest safety nets aren’t just for people. Dropped tools and equipment also contribute to fall hazards on the worksite. Safety Nets keep people safe from falling objects overhead.
While worker injury is the most talked about issue with fall hazards, the costs associated with the loss of equipment and products due to fall damage cannot be underestimated.
