Fall Restraint Protection 

The safest way to carry out a task is to eliminate the risk of falling. Fall restraint equipment ensures that the user cannot physically get to the fall risk. This is the safest means of access as chances of a user falling are low as long as the equpiment is used correctly. The equpiment normally used is a fixed of adjustable rope lanyard which is short enough to keep the user as safe distance from the fall risk, these are fixed to a reliable anchor point. 

Fall Arrest Protection 

When the risk of falling cannot be removed fall arrest protection will need to be used. These products use energy absorbers, which in the event of a fall tear out and extend reducing the load on the user and the structure. The equipment can be a fixed length or self retracting lines (inertia reels) to ensure the used has the shortest fall distance possible. These are fixed to a a reliable anchor point, idealy fixed over head. 

Rescue From Height 

One of the most over looked parts of a method statement is rescue, in the event of a fall how do you get your employee to safety and prevent further injury? 
If your employee has fallen on a fall arrest lanyard they will be hanging in the air, time is a major factor as in a short time they will start to face suspension trauma. A rescue plan should already be in place and ready to implement.  
 
The main factor you have to think of is will the fallen person be lifted or lowered to safety. 

Recovery Blocks 

These are fixed above the work area, sometimes fixed to a davit post. In the event of a fall the wire is extended and connected to the user's harness anchor point. The rescuer now can lift the fallen user to safety by winding the block and retracting the cable. 
These are usually used for confined space or man holes. 

Controlled Decent 

These are fixed to a reliable anchor point and the rope extends to fix to the fallen users harness anchor point. The rope is released from the decent device and the user is lowered to safety at a controlled speed. The speed can be recuded by the user or the rescuer by holding the rope. 
These are most commonly used in gerneral maintenance.
