Health and Safety is of paramount importance to Rhino Precast. A vital element of the comprehensive installation package we provide, as detailed on the installation section, and in line with the current health & safety legislation for working at height, is to provide a safe method of working.
Rhino Precast provide many fall arrest measures to facilitate the safe installation of the precast products. The appropriate method will be established in conjunction with the customer to suit the site requirements. This will be detailed in the method statement, risk assessment and crane lift plan. These include but is not limited to;-
Air bags – Passive fall arrest system The air bag system consists of a series of interlinked air mattresses which are installed together under the working area. These are inflated by a petrol air blower to provide a continuous fall arrest during the installation.
Trailer bags – Passive fall arrest system The trailer bags are a series of interlinked air mattresses which are installed around the delivery vehicle to provide protection during slinging and off-loading of the products. These are inflated by a petrol air blower to provide a continuous edge protection around the vehicle.
Safety netting – Passive fall arrest system The safety netting system is a series of nets ‘rigged’ together just below the working level providing a continuous fall arrest. These are installed by FASET trained operatives normally the day prior to the pre-cast installation.
Lightweight platform system – Fall prevention/working platform A lightweight fall protection/platform is a proprietary system installed by trained operatives to provide both a fall prevention and working platform during the installation.
Non standard or larger crane outrigger mats Where the ground bearing pressure of the crane outriggers need reducing, Rhino Precast can provide larger crane mats in order to spread the load.
