Examples of Operations:

  • work on high tension lines

  • tower construction

  • maintenance operations in wind farms...

Technical specifics:

  • the user generally progresses using lifeline, cable or rail type permanent fall arrest systems

  • lacking these, the user must ensure his/her own safety using personal protective equipment: energy-absorbing lanyard or mobile fall arrester on rope
