Our KeeLine protection systems provide the workers with a safe working position, allowing them to maintain the waterway and ensure that it is kept as clean as possible. Designed as a continual ‘handsfree’ system, the horizontal lifeline allows the workers to clear the debris and take river readings without having to detach themselves from the fall protection system, so guaranteeing safety at all times. A further benefit is that KeeLine can be used by up to three people when used in fall arrest, which allows the Environment Agency to have two workers using the system at the same time when required.
The Environment Agency was looking not only for a local supplier, but also one that could provide both customer and full technical support, which we were able to fulfill. The installation of the KeeLine horizontal lifeline systems allow operatives to work unhindered and in complete safety across the fast-flowing water to keep the rivers flowing freely and overcoming the potential for localised flooding.
