Legislation for the Construction Industry covered by CDM states that all new buildings and refurbishments must now include as part of their designs provisions for fall protection for all workers working at height and also for any future maintenance or inspection works.
A fall arrest system provides maximum freedom of movement for workers to conduct their work. The system is designed to allow the person to either effect a self-rescue or be rescued in the event of a fall.
A fall restraint system allows a person access to conduct their duties but prevents the worker from reaching a point where a fall could occur. Restraint systems are generally suitable if the person needs to work at the edge of a hazard, e.g. where there is a need to maintain gutters along the edge of a roof, or if there are other potential fall hazards such as a fragile roof, roof lights or air vents.
