The European Standards specifies the requirement for three different classes of Edge Protection. The relevant class for edge protection is based upon the inclination of the surface being protected.
Edge Protection must be installed in accordance with the Work at Height Regulations specified in EN13374.
Safety Netting must only be installed by competent Safety Net Riggers (CSCS FASET Trained)
Before any Safety Netting can be installed the structure must be able to take a minimum loading of 6kN at a 45 Degree angle.
All Safety Nets must be tested annually and have an appropriate inspection and maintenance register.
