General Safety


Access equipment operators are vulnerable to a number of dangers when working at height, but one danger often overlooked is the wind. This pocket-sized Anemometer device helps operators identify potential unsafe working at height conditions by providing the user with accurate wind speed-readings.

The device provides accurate airflow measurements even at low speeds, the user can view data in current, maximum or average display settings. Powered by an easily replaceable standard lithium coin cell battery, up to 300 hours of operation can be expected, the device automatically switches off if no keys are pressed for 45 minutes.

Harnesses and Lanyards

For the ultimate in safety and comfort when working at height, a range of harnesses and lanyards are available. Harnesses feature fast clip buckles and are adjustable at the leg loops, shoulder and chest and the IPAF approved lanyards are adjustable from 1 to 1.5 meters. Each harness and lanyard is individually serial numbered for traceability and are manufactured to the highest standards.
