Working at height always comes with one major risk – a fall. The only way to prevent this potential danger is to ensure that you have the right fall protection solutions in place. But this is not just about installing a fence or equipping your workers with a safety harness. Those basic safety measures are helpful but may not provide enough safety barriers against falls. It’s time to go beyond the basics and consider investing in advanced fall protection solutions, offering several layers of protection from falls for anyone working at height.
What are advanced fall protection solutions?
The protection solutions cover a wide range of innovative solutions designed to enhance the safety of anyone working at height. They combine effectiveness, adaptability, ease of implementation, and versatility to provide an additional layer of protection beyond the basics. They also integrate various sophisticated features designed to enhance work safety.
Advanced fall protection solutions
Here are some of the best-advanced fall protection solutions worth investing in.
Rapid post-edge protection systems
A simple edge protection solution can only do so much. On the other hand, a Rapid Post Edge Protection System offers advanced and more comprehensive fall prevention for height workers. This system is particularly designed to enhance safety at all construction sites. While its design typically consists of modular posts installed at the edges of roofs and other elevated surfaces, it incorporates more innovative technology designed to significantly minimize the risk of falls.
Some rapid post systems are available in different height protection levels – single, double, and even triple. Plus, installation is super easy, as you don’t need to drill or penetrate any concrete. Some protection systems may also feature guard rails, self-retracting lines, and safety, offering more than basic fall protection solutions.
It’s important to note, however, that this protection system works best on applications with a slab and a ceiling. But if your project does not have a ceiling, consider the next protection solution.
Dual-purpose edge protection systems
As the name suggests, Dual Purpose Protection Systems are designed to achieve two things at the same time – one, provide edge protection to keep workers from falling, and two, serve as a stable working platform in some cases. Their design also makes them very versatile and adaptable, with drill and fix-purpose systems perfect for mounting onto concrete and timber structures. For workers working on open slab edges this design will enhance their safety by removing the need for creating separate edge protection and work platforms. They are also ideal for balconies and building facades as they’re incredibly light but robust.
The standard support system
If you’re looking for a more flexible but strong fall protection and support system, the Standard Support Post System should be your go-to option. This option is perfect for a wide variety of slab applications. Its design features standard posts that you can use with various attachments, ideal for construction projects with varying slab applications. And just like the previous fall protection system (the Dual Purpose Edge Protection), the Standard Support System is versatile enough to be used on slab edges, balconies, internal voids, and stairwells. This support system is durable, robust, and designed with versatility and adaptability in mind.
State-of-the-art edge protection
If you’re looking for something that will easily meet the fall protection or unique requirements for all job sites, then look no further than specially designed, state-of-the-art edge protection. This high-quality and cost-effective solution is an excellent fall protection, regardless of the roof surface, roofline, or roof edge you’re working on. Understandably, fall protection requirements may differ from site to site, as there’s no single solution ideal for every situation. But that’s why the start-of-the-art edge protection solution features multiple height variations, making it perfect for different applications. For example, you can find options available in various height installations. And if you or your workers need a complete enclosure while working at height, you can take advantage of full-height screens that leave no gaps and offer an additional layer of fall prevention.
