Specialist catalogue 2017 for fall protection systems and personal protective equipment for the prevention of falls. Carl Stahl Hebetechnik GmbH has published its specialist catalogue 2017 "Fall protection systems and personal protective equipment for the prevention of falls" in a new and expanded version. In the age of Industry 4.0, man and machines work together with utmost efficiency in intelligent and flexible production facilities. Despite this, industrial workplaces still have areas that people could potentially fall from. For years, the Carl Stahl Group has focussed on tasks within the field of occupational safety, especially in the area of fall protection systems and personal protective equipment for the prevention of falls. For 2017, our extensive specialist catalogue provides valuable advice on the complexity of this topic and a comprehensive range of product and services. The product range includes many prestigious brands, including beyond those shown specialist catalogue, and is the largest on the European market. The portfolio ranges from simple and comfortable fall arrest harnesses, seat harnesses and waistbelts to retractable type fall arresters, all varieties of this kind of equipment for industrial areas, especially work in confined spaces, and collective protection solutions like aluminium railing systems in the parapet wall area on flat roofs, including escape and maintenance routes on industrial flat roofs. Thanks to its global sites, the Carl Stahl Group is also able to plan and implement international projects. The on-site situation and customer requirements are always carefully considered when selecting an appropriate product brand. In addition to the product range, the Carl Stahl Academy also offers comprehensive, practice-oriented specialist courses such as "Qualified inspector for personal protective equipment for the prevention of falls" pursuant to DGUV principle 312-906 on an annual basis.
