It is important that when you are required to work at
height, you do so responsibly, not just for your own safety, but for others
too. By following these 3 safety measures you and other around you will remain
Fall Arrest Blocks
When you are working at height, it is essential that you are protecting yourself and minimising the risks of slips and falls from height. Fall Arrest blocks are a retractable lifeline, generally made from wire rope, which is stored within a case containing an inertia reel.
In the unfortunate event of a fall, the wire rope is pulled out of the block until it reaches critical velocity, which is when the breaking system locks, preventing you from falling any further. Our Fall arrest blocks all have a shock-absorbing system built in preventing you from getting hurt.
Here at SafetyLiftinGear, we sell a variety of Fall Arrest blocks, so when you are purchasing, please ensure you have selected the correct Block for the required task.
