Here is some safety information related to working with fall arrest systems.

Hazard Identification: Hazards associated with fall arrest systems can include the risk of falls, equipment failure, improper installation, incorrect use, and lack of training. Other hazards can include working at heights, unstable work surfaces, and environmental factors such as wind, rain, and snow.

Risk Assessment: A risk assessment should be conducted before using a fall arrest system. This should include an assessment of the work site, equipment to be used, and the skill level of the workers involved. A fall protection plan should be developed and implemented to minimize the risk of falls and ensure the safety of all workers.


  1. Proper Training: All workers involved in the use of fall arrest systems should receive proper training on the correct use and inspection of equipment.
  2. Inspect Equipment: All equipment must be inspected prior to use, and any defects or damage should be identified and addressed.
  3. Proper Installation: Fall arrest systems should be installed by a competent person in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Secure Anchors: Anchors should be securely attached to a structure capable of supporting the weight of the worker and the fall arrest system.
  5. Use Appropriate Equipment: The correct type of fall arrest system should be used for the specific task and conditions. For example, a full-body harness should be used instead of a waist belt when working at heights.
  6. Regular Inspection: Equipment should be inspected regularly, and any defects or damage should be identified and addressed.

Emergency Procedures: Emergency procedures should be established and communicated to all workers. These should include rescue procedures in the event of a fall, including the use of a rescue plan and appropriate equipment.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there! Today, I want to talk to you about something that may not be the most glamorous topic, but is extremely important when it comes to running a successful business: implementing reporting systems when injuries occur.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. “Gary, why do I need to worry about injuries? I have insurance, and accidents happen.” And you’re right, accidents do happen. But the truth is, accidents can have a huge impact on your business. Not only can they lead to increased insurance premiums, but they can also lead to lost productivity, decreased morale, and even lawsuits.

That’s why it’s so important to have a reporting system in place when injuries occur. This system will help you stay on top of incidents as they happen, allowing you to address them quickly and effectively. But how do you go about implementing such a system? Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Make reporting mandatory

The first step in implementing a reporting system is to make reporting mandatory for all employees. This means that if an injury occurs, employees must report it to their supervisor or HR department immediately. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at how many businesses don’t have this policy in place.

By making reporting mandatory, you ensure that you’re aware of any incidents as soon as they occur. This allows you to take action quickly, which can help prevent further injuries from occurring and minimize any negative impact on your business.

  1. Provide clear guidelines

In addition to making reporting mandatory, it’s important to provide your employees with clear guidelines on how to report injuries. This includes who to report to, what information to provide, and when to report.

By providing clear guidelines, you ensure that employees know exactly what to do when an injury occurs. This can help prevent confusion or delays in reporting, which can be crucial when it comes to addressing the incident and minimising its impact on your business.

  1. Train your employees

Even with clear guidelines in place, it’s important to train your employees on how to report injuries properly. This includes providing training on what types of injuries to report, how to fill out incident reports, and what to expect during the reporting process.

By training your employees, you ensure that they understand the importance of reporting injuries and how to do so effectively. This can help prevent misunderstandings or mistakes during the reporting process, which can be crucial when it comes to addressing the incident and minimising its impact on your business.

  1. Keep accurate records

Once an injury has been reported, it’s important to keep accurate records of the incident. This includes documenting the date and time of the incident, the employee(s) involved, the nature of the injury, and any witnesses or other relevant information.

By keeping accurate records, you ensure that you have a complete picture of the incident. This can be crucial when it comes to addressing the incident and any potential legal or insurance issues that may arise.

  1. Use the data to improve

Finally, it’s important to use the data you collect through your reporting system to improve your business. This means analysing the data to identify trends or patterns, and using this information to implement changes that can help prevent future injuries from occurring.

By using the data to improve, you ensure that your reporting system isn’t just a reactive measure, but a proactive one as well. This can help you create a safer and more productive work environment for your employees, which can ultimately benefit your business as a whole.

In conclusion, implementing a reporting system when injuries occur is crucial for any business. By making reporting mandatory, providing clear guidelines, training your employees, keeping accurate records, and using the data to improve, you can ensure that you’re able to address incidents quickly and effectively, minimising their impact on your business.
