Safety Programs for Working at Heights (SPWHs)

Working at heights refers to any work activity that involves a potential fall from a height equal to or greater than 1.5 meters. Our goal is to ensure that our clients have the right safety procedures and policies in place for working at heights, and secure the safety of employees exposed to a fall hazard. Based on the identification, analysis and prevention of risks related to a fall hazard from any height and in compliance with current regulations applicable to this type of work, we develop Programs for Safe Working at Heights (PSWHs) that meet the specific requirements of our clients.

Based on an individualized analysis we define the safe work procedures, profiles and restrictions for workers who perform any height activity, as well as any necessary prevention measures, such as delimitations and signaling, access controls, safe work procedures (SWPs), and specific functions and responsibilities for supervisors of work at heights, etc. We also establish the required personal protective equipment (PPE) to be used, such as fall restraint systems, which include anchor points, lifelines, safety hooks, safety lanyards, connectors, slings and harnesses, among others. When using Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAs) we make sure our clients choose the proper equipment. All full-body harnesses must meet American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards or their equivalent. Additionally, in order to prevent falls at elevation we undertake measures in order for our clients to adequately use guardrail systems, scaffolds, aerial lifts, fall restraints, and hole and floor covers.

Upon request of our clients we also give training to workers focused on safe working practices at heights and the correct use of relevant equipment to perform work in safe conditions. We are fully committed to the effective implementation of safe conditions for working at heights, ensuring that work is performed under strict control measures.
