Takes the gravity out of a fall situation
Work at Height – is your risk assessment complete?
As part of your commitment to Risk Assessment you are already aware that you have to protect your operative from the hazard of falls from height. These regulations apply to all workplaces and to all employees (also to the self-employed and employees of a third party). If you were to fully assess all the hazards and risks then you should also have addressed the actions you require in the event of a worker becoming suspended.
How can I provide a rescue solution?
Gotcha will provide rescue solutions/provisions for all your staff
who wear Fall Arrest Harnesses with Shock Absorbing Lanyards as long as you are able to safely access their anchor point.
What exactly can the Gotcha do?
The idea of the GOTCHA is to provide a rescue kit that will enable a rescuer to:
- Attach a casualty who is suspended by a fall arrest lanyard
- Raise casualty in order to release their current attachment
- Raise or lower the casualty to a point of safety
The above capabilities are all achievable without the need for the rescuer to access the casualty.
Gotcha Rescue Kit
The original kit in the range, designed for tradesmen who work at height
The Gotcha rescue kit is a unique solution to a problem faced by all workers at height who use PPE for protection against falls. Whereas most rescue provision has focused on the more extreme activities carried out at height, the Gotcha kit is designed for tradesmen who use common items of fall protection. In the event of a fall their situation if suspended is just as serious as any other worker and a swift recovery is essential. Suspension trauma does not discriminate against age, fitness, gender, or race – there are no particular high risk groups.
