Safety and Hazard Prevention
Fall restraint and fall arrest systems are designed to keep workers safe as they carry out maintenance and operational tasks in high-risk areas.
We offer a standard Rigid Track Fall Protection System, or a custom-engineered Rigid Track solution to meet your requirements. It comprises a permanently installed track and free-running trolleys housed within its enclosed profile.
A fall restraint system is used by workers who need to work at the edge of a structure. The restraint prevents workers from reaching the edge of a hazard or the point where a fall occurs.
A fall arrest system is put in place to stop a worker in the likelihood of a fall to a lower level or unto an obstruction. The fall arrest system takes into account the fall clearance – the distance required to safely arrest a worker’s fall from a given height. A fall arrest system allows the worker to perform a self-rescue or to be rescued in the event of a fall.
As a preference, Met-Track® should be installed in a fall restraint configuration to minimize the possibility of a fall. In circumstances that do not allow for fall restraint, Met-Track® can be installed to provide workers with the ultimate fall arrest protection.
