Peter Dodd and Anthony Kavanagh, Instructors, Lyon Work & Rescue Training Team, gave members practical demonstrations of the limitations and strengths of fall protection and fall arrest equipment during a worthwhile presentation on working at height. They emphasised the importance of having a robust management system to ensure that:

  • Job specific training is provided for those working at height.
  • All equipment used for working at height is stored and maintained so that it is ‘fit for purpose’ when next used.
  • Equipment that is not ‘fit for purpose’ is disposed of immediately (especially safety ropes).
