Supplier: Specialised Safety Equipment Australia

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.

Price Guide: POA

Important points to remember:

  • 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.
