Prevent Injury from a Fall

Fall Arrest Block-fall protection is very important, especially as falls are the biggest cause of death in the construction sector (with an average of 19 per year, according to the HSE). Whether its high winds, tripping hazards or simply loss of balance, there are many reasons why workers fall whilst working at height.A vital piece of equipment that can lessen the impact of a fall is a fall arrest block. As well as reducing the falling distance, they are designed to lower the impact on the body caused by falling vertically.
