WHAT IS FALL ARREST?
These types of safety systems protect you after you have fallen, stopping the fall before you hit the surface below. By connecting a sturdy body-holding device to a secure anchor, this equipment arrests and restricts users during a fall, preventing you from colliding with the ground, and limiting impact on the body.
Fall Arresters should be considered when operating near fragile, breakable surfaces, narrow ledges, or buildings of unusual shapes. Basically, any environment where you fear a risk of a fall.
Used in combination with other pieces of Personal Protection Equipment, such as Safety Harnesses, Fall Arrest Equipment requires full training and, by law, you need to have a well-thought our rescue plan in place should a fall occur. This will enable any users that fall to be retrieved in the quickest and safest manner.
