Gotcha 2 - Ultra-lightweight Rescue Kit

for remote rescue of casualties suspended from fall arrest equipment

Fall arrest lanyards, blocks and systems stop workers falling to the ground and are essential work at height equipment.  However, the problem is not solved only by arresting the fall, the casualty may be suspended out of reach, injured and in need of rescuing to a place of safety for urgent medical care.  

Lighter more compact Rescue Kit:

  • Improved ergonomic bag design is easier to carry, especially where access is awkward for example through hatches and hooped ladders, and in confined spaces.
    Workers are more likely to carry it with them ready for immediate deployment.

Improved pulley system:

  • Better control during lowering – less risk of bouncing the casualty on the way down. 
  • More efficient lifting – easier to rescue a casualty larger than the rescuer. 
  • Increased lift height – making recovery back up to the platform from where the casualty fell easier. 

SpanSet invented the revolutionary Gotcha Rescue System in 2000 to solve this problem.  Made in the UK, and recognised by industry as the market leader and the only patented, preassembled fall arrest rescue kit designed ready to deploy immediately in what can be a stressful situation.  Gotcha - Safeguarding scaffolders and the trades working in the Construction, Energy and Facilities Management industries for over 20 years.
