Identifying the Hazard: Falling from Height

Published on Feb 07, 2019

The potential to fall from heights can pose a serious risk on many construction sites. Shore Hire offers pieces of equipment that reduce this hazard, and make for a safer working environment. Pictured here is:

1. Non-slip platform
2. Ladder fixing arm
3. Self-closing gate
4. Easily secured to shoring
5. Inertia reel

Ladder Safe Platform

The Shore Hire Ladder Safe Platform provides a designated entry and exit point to and from the ground excavation. Utilising the ladder fixing arm, ladders can be securely fixed to the ladder safe to ensure the safety of personal when ascending/descending on the ladder.

The handrail system can be fixed securely to the ladder safe platform eliminating any gaps between the platform and handrail. The Ladder Safe Platform also features a self-closing and locking gate, eliminating any exposure to a live edge.

Davit Safe / Fall Arrest

The Shore Hire Davit Safe / Fall Arrest is designed to be mounted onto the shoring (steel and aluminum) panels and lifting eyes. When wearing a harness workers can clip onto the
davit safe inertia reel providing a fall arrest system before opening the ladder safe gate. This provides protection from falls once the gate is opened. With a 30-metre effective working length, workers can stay connected whilst working inside the trench.
