What is Fall Arrest?
Fall arrest systems arrest the fall of a worker once it has already occurred.
Fall Arrest is this all we need?
The answer to this is No. Fall arrest is the least favourable in the hierachy of control, as it does not prevent the worker from falling . Without other measures the risk of falling and injury is still a risk factor.
What are some main Fall Arrest Systems?
Some Fall arrest systems are Anchor Points, Rails, & Harnesses which give the worker a flexible working environment for moving in different directions while working at Heights.
What other control measures are there ?
To minimise the the risk of falls and injuries other Fall Prevention systems should be utilised with Fall Arrest systems, where deemed practicable. Guard Rails and Walkways provide edge protection and safe access paths in the aim to prevent falls.
