Reduce accident risk, safeguard operations, and save lives with world-class pedestrian protection from A-SAFE
In the U.S., forklifts were the source of 79 work-related deaths and the 8,140 nonfatal injuries that involved days away from work in 2019.
Stacked bulk goods can fall from height onto walkways, causing severe injury or death to anyone caught below.
Penalties for negligence are severe and can include fines and criminal prosecution for the individuals responsible.
Vehicle weight and speed, impact height, and angle of impact are just some of the factors to consider when choosing guardrails that are fit for purpose. Our safety experts will guide you through the process and ensure the barriers we supply provide the right level of protection from vehicles on your site.
Self-closing swing gates encourage people to stop and look for traffic or other hazards before stepping beyond the safety of walkways. Discover how A-SAFE safety gates can form part of your tailored safety solution.
Walkways should follow desire lines as closely as possible to discourage pedestrians from taking shortcuts. Safety barriers should be installed to define walkway boundaries and protect against straying vehicles. Contact our safety specialists for expert advice on planning walkways in your facility.
PAS 13 is an independent global benchmark for the installation and testing of workplace guardrails. It was produced by the British Standards Institution in partnership with leading international companies including Nestlé, Mars, and DHL. Learn more about PAS 13 pedestrian safety best practice.
Flexible industrial polymer and patented engineering absorbs and disperses impact forces to protect fixings and prevent floor damage.
Engineered with built-in memory to flex and fully recover from impacts, unique polymer design protects against costly barrier and vehicle damage.
Self-colored, non-corrosive and UV protected, advanced polymer guardrails stay visible, do not rust and never need painting, saving you time and money.
Unrivalled quality means owning every aspect of the development and production process. Our products are designed, developed, manufactured and tested in the UK at our state-of-the-art innovation and production facilities in Elland, West Yorkshire.
A-SAFE products are tested to the rigorous standards of BSI PAS 13, the global code of practice for testing the impact resilience of workplace safety barriers. Furthermore, conformity to PAS 13 is independently inspected and certified by TUV Nord - one of the world’s most respected independent test houses.
