We have invested a lot of time into perfecting our Safety Policy.
All of our Riggers are ISNET trained.
Irish Safety Net and Equipment Training
There are 2 levels of training and proficiency involved in order for a Net Rigger to be fully qualified.
Level 1 is similar to the FASET training course in the UK, which means a trainee Net Rigger can work supervised by a Level 2 ISNET Rigger or an experienced FASET Rigger. When it is considered that the Level 1 Rigger is experienced enough to partake in the Level 2 Net Rigger course, they are firstly assessed installing a Safety Net and working safely. Unlike the CSCS course in the UK, the trainee also learns about:
- The contents of the company Safety Statement and its importance
- Site Specific Method Statements
- Site Specific Risk Assessments
- Site Specific Rescue and Recovery Procedures
- Site Specific Safe Systems of Work Plan
- Site Specific Drawings and Roof Plans
- All the relevant documents such as GA1’s, GA2’s, GA3’s and how to complete them
- Daily checklists for equipment such as MEWP’s, Ladders and Scaffolds.
At the end of the course the participant will be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of the above and how to document them. As well as the intense training all INS Net Riggers have at a minimum:
- Current Safe Pass
- Manual Handling Training
- MEWP Operator Tickets
- Working at Heights Training
- Safety Harness Awareness Training
All INS Safety Nets and Equipment conform to EN1263-1 standards and are maintained and tested within the guidelines of BS 8411:2007 code of practice for Safety Nets on construction sites. INS also possess a detailed Safety Management System and Quality Management System in order to provide a safe and efficient service for its customers. These documents can be viewed on request.
