Falls from height are the single biggest cause of death and one of the biggest causes of serious injury in the workplace today. Windtex have trained and certified technicians capable of installation of many wind turbine fall arrest systems including anchor points and ladder fall protection systems. Using the latest MSA Latchways components, we can offer solutions ensuring that your employees and maintenance staff work in a safe environment.
Windtex also specialize in the testing and maintenance of height safety systems, providing inspection and maintenance of systems and personnel protective equipment in accordance with the appropriate standards and specifications.
Our main concern is the ongoing safety of all personnel working at height. Safety systems require inspection and re-certification on a regular basis. During testing, all components are visually inspected for signs of damage or corrosion as well as being subject to a proof-load test where applicable to ensure they can sustain a designated load.
