The Travsafe lines, designed to ensure the safety of maintenance fitters and electricians working on Corus’s 25 cranes, became necessary after new UK safety legislation meant that the old method of attaching harnesses to handrails was unacceptable.

Corus contact and services manager Alan Woodend, said: “The engineers found Travsafe very simple to use, attaching the connector of their harness to a traveller, which runs smoothly along the system and around angles and corners.”

Following its success in installing the Travsafe lines, Granada has also been awarded the maintenance contract, and will continue to check the lines on a six-monthly basis.

The Travsafe line conforms to BS EN 795 and is designed to meet the requirements of CDM regulations and other safety regulations such as HSG33.
