Protection System for Bridges and Viaducts with Safety Nets

As we have commented on numerous occasions, the risk of falling from a height is one of the main ones in the field of construction. This risk is even greater in certain jobs that involve greater complexity and height, as occurs for example in the construction of bridges and viaducts.

To undertake this type of works with all the necessary safety guarantees, it is necessary to previously analyze how each task is to be carried out and what individual and collective means of protection must be used in each execution phase.

The placement of safety nets in the construction of bridges and viaducts is essential to guarantee the safety of the operators. Generally they are essential during the phases of execution of structures on roads or railways in service because it is essential that the works are carried out without interfering with the safety of the movement of vehicles, avoiding, for example, the fall of objects to the tracks .
