Fall Protection is to be taken very seriously, especially for workers that will be using ladders to access areas to carry out work. As part of the workplace harmonisation laws ,The New NSW Managing Risks Falls in Workplaces Code of Practice, Para 7.2 States: “Ladder cages in fixed ladders do not stop a fall but simply funnel a fall and, in some cases, more injuries can occur from striking the protective backguards on the way down. The cages may also hinder rescues. Therefore, fixed ladders with angles exceeding 75 degrees to the horizontal should be fitted with a permanent or temporary fall-arrest system (anchorage lines or rails).” The issue with having a Cage AND a Vertical Line System is that carrying out a rescue in a cage ladder at the best of times is difficult let alone on an unconscious patient. RIGCOM Access’s recommendation is for the removal of the cage and installation of a Vertical Line System to comply with the new Code of Practice. Examples of where Vertical Line Systems approved and installed by RIGCOM Access can be used: Ladders Telecommunication Ladders Access Ladders onto Buildings Wind Turbine Access Ladders Facility Access Ladders
