Work carried out at heights in the construction sector can expose workers to occupational hazards, with serious consequences.
To minimize the risk of accidents due to falls, passive and active safety measures must be installed on scaffolding and temporary work structures, such as signs, handrails, ropes and safety nets.
AIDICO (Association of Building Industries in Valencia Region) located in Paterna, is the sole laboratory in Spain accredited for testing strength and elasticity of the various active safety systems in scaffolding and temporary work structures.
