Collective Protection (Fall Prevention)

As a safety driven company, we are committed to providing safer systems of work in the erection, dismantling and alteration of scaffold structures.

This is achieved with Collective Protection (fall prevention) Equipment. Turner Access believes that this dedication to providing safer systems of work falls under a moral responsibility as well as legal obligation. Our pioneering developments in Collective Protection (fall prevention) Technology have resulted in us becoming recognised in the access marketplace as an industry leader in promoting and providing innovative solutions to working safely at height.

Pioneering at BEST PRACTICE Level 1 and 3 of the Hierarchy of Measures and in full compliance with the Work at Height Regulations 2005, we can provide complete fall prevention with our Advance Guardrails (Collective Protection) and specialist training courses.

Turner Access created the world’s first comprehensive Collective Protection Guidance Manual to prevent the risk of fall (achieving fall prevention) during erection, dismantle and alteration for all types of temporary equipment including traditional Tube and Fittings, System Scaffold, composite towers and falsework in all of the main configurations.

Integral Advance Guardrail System - BetaGuard®

Turner Access continues to provide safer systems of work with the development of another Collective Protection Solution - BetaGuard®, an INTEGRAL Advance Guardrail System for use on Aluminium Towers.

Assembling and dismantling aluminium towers must comply with the standards set out by the Work at Height Regulations 2005. Hierarchical requirements place collective protection over mitigation options. As an advance guardrail system the BetaGuard® provides Best Practice Collective Protection, but without the Manual Handling problems associated with current Industry practice.

The BetaGuard® simplifies tower erection by eliminating the need for both horizontal and diagonal braces, reducing the main components to a total of three. Utilisation and asset management is achieved with ease as individual single bracing members more susceptible to loss, damage and theft are replaced.

Other benefits of the BetaGuard® Advance Guardrail System include its ability to act as a bridging component to bridge towers, removing the need for bridging lattice beams. Tower erection without trip hazards at base level and a walk in/through facility with high clearance is automatically achieved.

Through creative design the BetaGuard® Advance Guardrail System provides Affordable Innovation, Achievable Safety and Astounding Simplicity.
