When working at height in a fall arrest situation, a rescue plan and process must always be in place. All workers who access areas of risk should be equipped with a rescue kit/device and have completed appropriate training.
Eurosafe Solutions currently offer two solutions for rescue. these are:
- IKAR Rescue Kit
- MSA Latchways Personal Rescue Device (PRD)
Another very popular and highly effective rescue kit is Latchways’ Personal Rescue Device (PRD). This is designed to arrest a fall and limit the forces applied to the worker and to the connecting anchor device. This PRD provides a means of self rescue for the user, allowing for a controlled descent to a safe location following a fall. The Latchways PRD can be used in any location where a certified anchor device is available at a maximum height of 20 metres. Find out more here.
