Almost every company has some involvement with working at heights: loading train wagons, working on wind turbines, repairing an air-conditioning unit on the roof, using cherry pickers, etc.
Employee safety? It’s an obligation for employers!
What exactly does it involve?
- To guarantee the safest possible workplace: mapping risks, and taking measures to eliminate or minimise them.
- To provide equipment so that employees can carry out their work well and safely.
Unfortunately, many accidents still happen as employees often do not know how to use their personal fall protection. Things like: how do you put on a harness? Is it the right size? Which anchor points should you use and which should you absolutely not use? And what should you do if you do fall and are left hanging?
Many companies rely on the knowledge and expertise of the emergency services. But they often do not have the right equipment or are under time pressure.
