The Consultation period for the HSE’s proposals on Working at Height ended on 2nd April. HSE is now considering the 700 or so responses received. Proposals for final regulations will be put to the Health and Safety Commission for consideration in soon. If agreed these regulations would then go to Ministers in the Department of Work and Pensions before being laid before Parliament. The Regulations are not likely to come into force until the end of the year.
Respondents to the Consultation exercise have asked many questions about the draft proposals and where we are able to we want to provide reassurance or explanation on these. This page will provide updates on some of these as the final proposals are developed.

The newest fall arrester UNIVERSAL II lives up to its name. The new, patented fall arrester UNIVERSAL II has been engineered in order to revolutionise its kind. UNIVERSAL II can be inserted or removed at any point along the guide rail. Compared to traditional devices, this has the advantage that it can work without entry or exit devices or recesses. The UNIVERSAL II can be used:

  • On equipment with restricted access in order to avoid unauthorised access,
  • When entry or exit height is uncertain, e.g.,
  • varying level of water at oil rigs
  • varying level of snow at ski lifts, energy masts, etc.
  • different exit levels on high shelves in warehouses etc.
  • On equipment where access to the guide rail should be possible at any point, e.g.,in case of danger, in lift shaft or wind energy turbines
  • Whenever a rescuer needs to pass an injured person on the guide rail during an emergency
