FALL PROTECTION

FALL PROTECTION AND RESCUE DEVICES – TOTAL SOLUTIONS FOR WIND WORKERS


Fall protection is an absolute must when working on wind turbines. The same applies for rescue concepts and self-evacuation solutions


As a leading distributor of PPE and MRO equipment, OAASIS offers a diverse portfolio of solutions by Skylotec, a German manufacturer and developer of fall protection.


OAASIS, a DistributionNOW company, supports the on and offshore sectors by supplying essential and specialist equipment. Fall protection is among these as wind turbine technicians must constantly face the risk of falling by making one wrong move or losing their footing. It is therefore essential for users to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). In addition, companies also need to consider what to do in case of an emergency.


ABSEILING AND RESCUE MANOEUVRES


For abseiling and rescue manoeuvres, devices with centrifugally controlled brakes allowing safe, hands-free abseiling at a constant speed have established themselves to be most appropriate. In wind energy, “Milan” is a standard device for rescuing injured people or for rapid evacuation of several people. It can be stored in the nacelle in a specific vacuum sealed box so that it is close at hand in an emergency. Two technicians can evacuate from heights simultaneously. Workers could also need self-evacuation devices, for example, when the place where “Milan” is stored is trapped by a fire or when a co-worker is seriously injured. In these situations, this is possible thanks to personal abseiling devices such as the DEUS 3700 which are worn on the body along with the PPE.


COMFORT AND EASE OF OPERATION


Surveys among users have proven that comfortable wear and uncomplicated handling are critical criteria for them to enjoy wearing their PPE against falls from heights. Skylotec therefore put a


focus on ergonomics and comfortable wear as well as on making application and handling of their PPE as easy as possible for the users. Harnesses such as the ‘Ignite


Proton Wind’ offer a perfect fit and straightforward use. This harness is certified according to EN 361 and EN 358 and is suitable for user weights up to 140 kg. Based on recent demographic developments, the manufacturer of fall protection fostered improvements


in additional sectors such as energy absorbing lanyards. Its ‘Skysafe Pro’ comes with a special key feature – the restraining fastener covers a broad weight range from 50 to 140 kg. This reduces the risk of a user taking an energy absorbing lanyard which is not suitable for his weight.
