FALL PROTECTION IN INTRALOGISTICS
A fall protection system a construction, such as a safety fence, which has the purpose of protecting people from accidents. It is applied in production plants or in warehouses, i.e. where there is a risk of falling. These are usually traffic routes, such as ramps, platforms or walkways, that are more than one metre above the ground, or the event of a risk for persons or vehicles to fall through openings. In some cases, the European Standard EN ISO 14122-3 requires, for example, a safety fence to prevent accidental falls, if the fall height is only 50 cm. Usually the legislator regulates whether an employer must install a fall protection and how high it should be.
Important to know: A simple safety fence, which primarily functions as a distance protection system, does not meet the necessary requirements and can therefore cannot be used as a fall protection system. Among other things, it lacks the necessary screw connections to withstand the impact energy if an employee falls against the safety fence. In order to be approved as a fall protection system, protective fences must also meet other normative requirements. Without fulfilling these, they cannot protect an employee from an accidental fall in an emergency and thus represent an enormous safety risk. It is therefore most important to focus on correct fall protection measures in intralogistics.
SAFETY FENCE AND FALL PROTECTION IN ONE
TIEMANN has integrated the railing principle into the separating safety system and developed a combination of both safety fence and fall protection. The system thus fulfils a dual purpose and is more than just a simple safety fence. On the one hand, it prevents danger points from being accessed as usual. On the other hand, it also withstands higher loads to prevent accidental falls. The first certified safety fence including fall protection is therefore a real innovation in intralogistics. If you are looking for a solution that is a distance protection system and fall protection both in one, you will find the right solution at safetyfence24. As usual, the protection system features the proven frameless element design, which can be individually adapted to your own requirements. This means that safe protection of employees can be guaranteed at all times.
