March 2019 – Watch Out Below! Maintaining a safe arrest distance in low clearance environments.

This Technical Day was of relevance to those with a specific interest in Working at Height with harnesses with low fall clearance, Confined Space Access and Safe work when loading vehicles.

Of particular interest were self-retracting lifelines and the introduction of the new hybrid technology leading to a significant increase in worker safety.

September 2019 - The Proof is in the pudding!
