Our new overhead rail fall arrest system in action, at Abbey Logistics’ bag to bulk tanker materials handling facility near the Port of Liverpool.
Designed and installed by market-leading fall protection company Heightsafe, the new system enables our team to work at height safely with no restrictions or obstructions. For our customers, this means much quicker loading times for tankers leading to increased predictability for their supply chains.
Our bag to bulk facility in Bromborough provides materials handling services and requires our professional warehouse staff to work on top of tanks each day to assist with the loading of bulk bags into road tankers. This specialist service requires a system in place that ensures our team is completely safe while working on top of the tankers.
Overhead rail systems have many advantages, such as deflecting less than a cable system in the event of a fall, therefore arresting the fall quicker and making it more comfortable for the user. The rail system is also much more practical than many other systems because of its easy maintenance and the cable that secures users to the system does not restrict or obstruct the work they need to do.
