Capital Safety is releasing a free introductory guide to fall protection, titled ‘Every Worker’s Guide to Height Safety Essentials’.
Capital Safety supplies the world-renowned DBI-SALA and PROTECTA brands of fall protection equipment.
Working at height is risky and falls can place workers at serious risk of injury, and sometime even death. The risk can be avoided with the use of effective fall protection equipment that ensures that every worker facing these hazards makes it home safely at the end of their day.
Capital Safety has now developed a handy guide to height safety essentials in the interest of workplace safety, aimed at informing and educating users in working safely at height.
Written as an introductory guide to height safety and intended to improve overall understanding of fall protection as well as enhance worker safety when working at height, the safety booklet is ideal for use when evaluating fall protection requirements at the workplace or worksite.
Some of the subjects covered in the guide include the ABCs of fall protection, fundamental facts, swing fall hazards, fall clearance, inspection and maintenance, training as well as regulations. The guide also includes a glossary of fall protection terminology.
The booklet is available at no cost from Capital Safety’s website in either PDF or hard copy format.
The safety booklet is not intended to replace competent training but rather serves as a reference guide to fall protection basics.
Capital Safety provides accredited competency-based training in a variety of fall protection disciplines through open enrolment with some modules available via online learning.
Capital Safety is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of height safety, confined space and industrial rescue equipment with 11 operating sites worldwide.
