Hazard and product information resources for four typical scenarios involving working at height.
At a minimum, MEWPs consist of a work platform with controls, an extending structure and a chassis. MEWPs are generally used for mobile and short duration work at height. It is general practice that personal work restraint systems are used in boom type MEWPs to prevent the risk of the occupants being thrown out of the basket
Accessing, operating and maintaining overhead cranes may present many challenges and risks, including accessing vertical ladders, moving machinery, electrical equipment and unguarded edges. As with all work at height; escape and rescue in the event of an emergency needs to be considered and appropriate provisions made.
Working on plant, vehicles or equipment presents several challenges as the worker usually needs the freedom to move around the vehicle or plant and often there is limited fall clearance in which to arrest a fall
The 3M™ DBI-SALA® Flexiguard™ Modular Jib System is a range of interchangeable jibs and bases which provide a portable and versatile overhead anchor solution for situations where low fall clearances or height restrictions exist.
