In making a decision to purchase a safety net for personnel fall safety, it is important to consider the insurance and legal consequences of a net being required to arrest a fall and the possibility of injury occurring.
What is the reaction of your insurance company and how will the law deal with any claim?
Will the law recognise that there is no Australian standard for PFS nets? And will the law take the view that you should have used an international standard?
Or will your insurance company and the law recognise that you took due care in designing a net and yet, while it did not strictly comply with a standard (as there is no appropriate Australian Standard); it was strong enough to take the applied load.
There are no clear answers to these questions and you must make a considered judgement on the selection of materials.
