I’ve been in the fall protection industry for more than 25 years. Fall protection was a rarity in The Netherlands when I started, and I’ve seen fall protection solutions evolve from simple systems with waist belts to all the solutions that are available now.
I remember 20 years ago a client who built warehouses told me that safety equipment would only slow them down and make them less competitive. Thankfully, those days are over. Contractors cutting corners on safety are now a rare but dangerous minority. The vast majority of contractors out there are qualified companies with a high regard for the safety of their employees.
