PREVENTING FALLS FROM HEIGHT WHILE MAINTAINING THE WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT
Work at height means work in any place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall and injure themselves. The fall could be from one level to another including from ground level into an opening in a floor or hole in the ground. Many maintenance activities take place at height, such as replacement of high level lighting, decorating and plastering or working in an attic or roof space.
Protecting floor voids can be an issue on many building tasks, in both new-build and refurbishment project. During refurbishment work, when lifting and removing floor boards, the STS Safety Trellis mats are deployed so that areas of work are easily identified and made safe. Access is by lifting the trellis mat; it is then easily replaced after the trade work has finished. The work can also be readily inspected. The mat quickly folds up for moving around the contract.

- Easy identification and make safe an area when lifting and removing floor boards.
- The mat is deployed by expanding it across an opening.
