Why Does the Aerospace Sector Need Fall Arrest and Height Protection Systems?
In addition to aerospace production, day-to-day maintenance and testing puts technicians at danger of workplace falls that need specialised safety measures.
Productivity and safety are never mutually exclusive in an aerospace facility, and with the right fall protection measures in place, they may both exist.
The Importance of Providing a Safe Production Environment for All Workers
Providing a safe production environment for contractors, technicians, and maintenance personnel working on aircraft wings and fuselages necessitates the use of a comprehensive fall prevention plan that includes the proper combination of fall protection equipment, training, and cooperation with a fall protection firm that understands your facilities access points and potential fall hazards.

The Employers Duty to Procure Fall Protection Equipment in the Aerospace Sector
Working at height is a legal minefield, but as an employer you are legally required to negotiate it and make the work environment safe for your employees.
Falls from height are still one of the most common causes of workplace fatalities, and this frequently stems down to employers and workers failing to comprehend or follow regulations. To abide to key legislation, you must make sure your employees are prepared for working at height.
This couldn’t be more true in the aerospace industry as more workers are exposed to working from heights.
When Is Fall Protection Required In The Aerospace Industry?
When a worker is performing tasks at a height where a fall might result in bodily harm, they must have fall protection. This includes working on a ladder, gantry or temporary elevated surface and even dealing with an open hole in the ground. Sometimes common sense will tell you that no additional precautions are required; however, other times it will be obvious that steps should be taken.
