Working smart from the start with CentaGuard™

According to HSE, approximately 2,000 people are injured as a result of falling from a vehicle each year. Employers have a legal duty and responsibility to ensure that the safety of their employees is not put at risk.

With falls from vehicles accounting for around a third of all workplace transport injuries, suitable measures should be put in place to prevent falls from happening.

CentaGuard™ is an effective vehicle fall protection solution. Designed for integration with dropside and trailer bodies, it protects operatives when loading and unloading vehicles. The cost-effective system is easy to install and lightweight, having minimal impact on vehicle payload.

This is an easy to install system that increases safety without the need for specialist equipment. Twisted snap hooks are fitted to both ends and straps are tensioned with a ratchet buckle to maximise protection against falls. Fall protection straps are approved according to the standard of load restraint assemblies on road vehicles, EN 12195-2.

When climbing on and off the vehicle, HSE suggests there are always at least three points of contact. CentaGuard™ offers the full package, complete with two access steps and two grab handles. It is recommended that the first step is positioned so it can be easily reached, approximately 40cm from the ground (no more than 70cm).

All components are finished in a bright yellow colour, to ensure they’re highly visible when loading and unloading the vehicle.
