Rope access is a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving, which applies practical ropework to allow workers to access difficult-to-reach locations without the use of scaffolding, cradles or an aerial work platform. Contact NSL to assist with any rope access requirements.
Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. ‘Work at height’ means work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury (for example a fall through a fragile roof). Safety netting provides collective fall protection. See the HSE website for additional information: http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/height.htm
Servicing the construction industry nationwide and trading out of North East England since 2004.
Fragile roofs and the use of safety netting: Safety netting is the preferred fall arrest option since it provides collective protection and does not rely on individual user discipline to guarantee acceptable safety standards. They can simplify systems of work and can protect not only roof workers, but others such as supervisors. https://webcommunities.hse.gov.uk/connect.ti/workheight/view?objectId=12883
