Workplace Safety Equipment

Safety in the workplace is supported by equipment designed to help prevent accidents from happening. Harnesses, ropes, lighting and decks are examples of preventative measures to mitigate the risks of falling or hitting obstacles. They are generally used for specific types of work where physical injury is a potential hazard.

Fall prevention measures are in place for the safety of employees when operating in high risk areas such as roofs, or during construction activities, and also during rescue operations. When work is performed on elevated surfaces, protection against falls frequently must be considered. Fall protection equipment is often used when fall hazards cannot be controlled by railings, floors, nets, and other means. These systems are designed to stop a free fall of up to six feet while limiting the forces imposed on the wearer.

Working at height is associated with hazards that are hard to address through personal protection alone, and fitting height guards is an important part of keeping the surroundings secure against accidental falls. These systems are tough and must weather resistant to suit the less favourable conditions at large heights. Rails undoubtably improve worker safety at even small heights on buildings.

Good safety practices and careful use of fall prevention, and fall arrest devices when working at height, might just save your life. Fall prevention measures are in place for the safety of employees when operating in high risk areas such as roofs, or during construction activities, and also during rescue operations.

There are many advanced devices and even mobile apps which contribute to worker's personal safety by alerting others around an individual as to their status, so they can be saved quickly during an accident. They are able to track an invidivual's location through GPS and wireless technology. The devices are supported by indoor beacons when GPS signals are unreliable.

Safety Harnesses are designed to stop a free fall of up to six feet while limiting the forces imposed on the wearer. Body harnesses are required for use with all personal fall arresting systems when working at height for safety and protection.

Portable Safety Lighting is very important to provide good visability, as working in poor light can be a serious health and safety risk. It is vital that proper precautions are taken to ensure good visibility as and when required. Portable Lighting is excellent for companies who work in a large variety of locations for short amounts of time.

Safety ropes are designed to work in conjunction with safety harnesses when working at height and generally attached between a stationary and non-stationary device. Safety ropes can also be used and installed around a work area on a roof, which act as a barrier to prevent those working on the roof from approaching it edges.
