Safety Netting Fall Protection and the Council

The HSE Act (Safety Nets Council requirements) states if there is a chance for anyone to fall from any height regardless of how long they are working all reasonable and practical steps must be taken to ensure their safety.  Many think that if they are working a height under three metres no safety steps need to be taken this is untrue.  A fall from even this height can still cause life changing injuries and even paralysis.  In one year out of 760 residential construction sites visited half were shut down for not meeting safety guidelines. 


The costs to the construction industry are $24 million a year.  Safety nets are one of the leading go-to’s for site safety, we at Sitenets have been manufacturing high quality safety nets for over 35 years.  Our Nets are:
