When entering a confined space, you will need equipment for safe access and egress, tripods, fall arrest recovery devices and man-riding winches form part of this equipment. A tripod is set up over the access point and a fall arrest recovery device is attached to the tripod and then attached to the anchor connection point of the harness worn by the operative. When climbing down the ladder into the confined space should the operative slip or become overcome by gas, the fall arrest device activates the inertia inside (very much like a car seatbelt) and arrests the fall, stopping the operative falling to the ground. The Top Person monitoring the entry can then activate the recovery winch mechanism and either raise (preferably) or lower the casualty to safety.

If no ladder access is available, then you must use a man-riding winch to lower and raise the person in and out of the confined space and the fall arrest device then becomes a back-up secondary system. The fall arrest device is not designed for the continuous raising and lowering of personnel and could become ineffective in the event of fall. After any fall arrest has taken place the tripod, fall arrest and winch must be returned to an authorised service centre, such as Total Protection for examination, the harness used must be destroyed so it can’t be re-used and disposed of correctly. Equipment should be thoroughly checked and inspected before each use and have a 6 monthly LOLER examination carried out by a competent company and a service is required on an annual basis again carried out by an authorised service agent such as Total Protection.
