The Problem:

Did you know? The second highest cause of injury in the workspace is due to slips, falls, and trips. For this reason, it is in the interest of every business to prevent the possibility of these happening. There are over 500 000 injuries related to ladders every year. Therefore, we can deduce that we need to pay special attention to the prevention of slips, falls, and trips when dealing with ladders. So the question is what are the best steps to take to ensure safety on ladders? What are the best ladder safety solutions?

The Fallprotec SecuRope Quickset is a ladder lifeline that is designed to be set up as a permanent lifeline on your existing permanent ladders. The lifeline consists of a tensioned, vertical cable with an autostop glider that the user clips onto his/her harness. The autostop glider runs freely when ascending or descending but it locks out instantly in the case of a fall. One has the option to either build the shock-absorbing device into the SecuRope Quickset lifeline or on the individual gliders depending on the specific situation. 

This option is ideal for quickly upgrading your current ladders.

Solution #2: SecuRail


The Fallprotec SecuRail is a combined ladder and lifeline. It can also be added to an existing permanent ladder. The SecuRail vertical lifeline can be used as a replacement for an old system or to be built onto a new building. Instead of relying on a tensioned cable, the SecuRail consists of an aluminum rail that the user clips onto. The rail requires each user to have their own shock absorber glider. This allows for more than one person at a time on the system. The locking device is incredibly efficient and allows the user to climb and descend freely without any hindrance from the rail. For a more discrete look the SecurRail rungs can be built to fold into the rail this is called the Mast Ladder.

This option is perfect for replacing old ladders, for adding to existing ladders, or for building on new towers, masts, or buildings.
