What is a Fall Arrest System?

A fall arrest system is a system whereby when you fall, an arrest block will ensure that the fall is carried out in a safe and controlled manner. Depending on the type of equipment you use, you'll more than likely be suspended in the air should you fall, which makes it crucial that you have an escape plan. For more information on fall protection, please see our Introduction to Fall Protection blog.

Please note that it is the law that anyone using a fall arrest system must be trained by a professional.
