Personnel safety net
Personnel safety nets (aka safety netting or horizontal fall protection netting) are mandatory on construction sites which imply a risk of falling, such as industrial construction, bridge building, demolition works, the installation of solar panels on roofs, etc. These horizontal safety nets provide a significant contribution in the field of fall protection. Because they are hung under the workplace to be secured (domes, bridges, scaffolding, etc.), workers are caught if they fall without getting hurt.
