Dealing with electric, gas, water and sewerage, those working within the utilities industry are exposed to safety hazards on a daily basis. In this line of work, working with hazardous substances, potentially dangerous equipment and both at height and underground, significantly increases the risk of damage and injury. Such hazards, place utility workers at risk to the most common causes of workplace injury, such as slips, trips and falls.

CoverSafe Trench is a fall-prevention system formulated with GRP, used to prevents falls into open trenches. GRP material allows the trench cover to be insulated, providing full protection against electrical dangers, whilst being lightweight, yet extremely durable. The cover can be clipped down at each corner to ensure extra stability, and the trellis pattern allows for easy inspection of work without having to lift the mat.
