Ultimate Safety Working at Heights with RUD Fall Protection Anchorage Points

According to RIDDOR falls from height were the most common cause of fatalities from 2013/2014, accounting for nearly three in ten (29%) fatal injuries to workers than any other injury kind. The importance of safety working at heights and the use of top quality fall protection equipment is clear to see from the figures above.

Safety is imperative when working at heights and across potentially hazardous working environments. RUD fall protection anchorage points provide an ultimate safety factor by permanently attaching to structures where frequent fall protection is required.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
