  • Turner Access News- Scaffolding and Access
    not prevent but normally at best only arrest the fall was something that we embraced to resolve This was no small challenge to find a solution to a practice that has been around since the Pyramids were built and scaffolding was first erected How to take away the risk of fall at all times during the process to complete the scaffold Moreover the regulations also made the use of harnesses and PPE in general as a last resort and only suitable for use where Collective means of protection passive such as guardrails or netting could not be achieved However we could see that if we could solve this problem we would also eliminate other concerns over the use of harnesses not least e g the possibility of suspension trauma the need for rescue planning and resources that should always accompany the use of harnesses and the general uncertainty surrounding inspection and the harnesses ability to do what it should do in the event of an arrest fall due to environmental degradation Additionally a truly safe system of work for scaffolding erection dismantling and alteration is something that in its detail should not just minimise risk of fall but eliminate completely the risk of fall in every single stage of the methodology required to build the scaffold The scaffolding expert reader of this article will know that such systems of work have currently not been developed for use in the Industry That is until now Additional equipment in the form of scaffolding like pieces are required known as Advance Guardrails in combination with new processes in the erection dismantling and alteration methodology to achieve fall risk prevention We produced following extensive development over several years the worlds first universal Advance Guardrail However while this equipment was developed to fit and operate

  • Turner Access focused on key Health and Safety issues & systems of work
    This is evolution the gradual development of something into a more complex or better form Everything from the tower s adjustable leg up to the new GRN spigot has been improved to make the Beta Tower faster lighter stronger inherently safer and more versatile Therefore anyone who is currently using the industry s common tower who wants to evolve can do so as Turner Access can also support users who want to use their existing equipment with the new Beta Tower Recognising this as a current problem within the industry Turner Access plan to provide assembly guidance which will contain information on mixing components which have performance specifications that produce lower ratings than the Beta tower unit When suitable common product components are mixed with the Beta Tower this must result in the Beta Tower being down rated to match those components of the lower specification equipment Therefore this useful approach and higher specification will not only be most helpful and reassuring to users it will also provide them with important design justification and a practical solution to a problem which until now industry has failed to address From their experience through membership of the leading trade associations Turner Access are now about to be at the forefront in positively dealing with widespread industry practice involving the mixing of access scaffolding equipment from other manufacturers Recognising that with the many advances incorporated into the Beta Tower and the advantages this will offer users of other similar equipment Turner Access will offer design guidance however this component mixing justification guidance will be limited to products that are dimensionally the same and approved manufactured as a minimum to the product standard BS EN 1004 2004 A new code currently under development by the NASC when complete will also be combined with Turner
