Falls are among the most common causes of serious work related injuries and deaths, and employers are responsible for ensuring a work environment that prevents employees from falls.
Working at heights is difficult and historically has been fraught with risk. Operating machinery at height, manuevering through complex truss systems, erecting and configuring complicated equipment demand total concentration – all at a height of dozens or hundreds of feet. For even experienced crew, this is a daunting task.
The best option for eliminating a fall is to NOT allow fall in the first place, and that takes a combination of the right equipment and the right training.
With over 20+ years in the business of working at heights, IAS has created a range of height safety training programs that teach the proper use of equipment, but cover rescue techniques as well. Our Staff carries and is up to date on latest certifications of SPRAT, IRATA and ENSA. We can create a unique program that will fit the requirements of your specific industry.
