Abbey Scaffolding (Swindon) Ltd are pleased to offer the additional service of man safety netting, a growing requirement for many contractors when working on roofs or areas that require the additional safety precaution of safety netting.
Safety nets protect workers on site. They prevent fatalities and serious accidents when working at height. In the majority of situations safety nets have advantages over other forms of fall arrest. The UK Health & Safety Executive regard nets as their "preferred method of fall arrest when working at height".
Our personnel and debris safety nets comply with stringent UK and European regulations and are annually tested in laboratories to ensure their robustness.
The technical side of fall prevention and fall arrest has moved away from simple strength issues and has embraced energy absorption as the fundamental principle governing the design and the performance.
It is of vital importance that in order to work as an effective system we ensure the following points are adhered to:
- Nets comply with BS EN 1263-1
- Rigging is carried out by riggers who are fully qualified
- Equipment is systematically maintained
The modern, lightweight safety nets used by Abbey Scaffolding (Swindon) Ltd are fitted as close to the work position as possible. By fitting safety nets so close to the working level they prevent a fall causing personnel injury and also offer a collective level of protection, as such, they are an improvement on the use of harnesses and lanyards.
