FASET (Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training) is the established trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry.
FASET has long been a foundation in supporting its members with expert quality guidance, dedicated working at height training and exclusive membership benefit schemes all with the intention of promoting a safer way of working. Falls from height are still the leading cause of death in the workplace, and that’s why we strive to achieve extremely high standards with our training, courses and guidance and that is shown through our trusted and reliable contractors, manufacturers and trainers in the industry. Being a FASET member is a symbol of trust and ensuring complete peace of mind when businesses choose our members to partner with. All members undergo a rigorous audit which is now accredited by SSiP and is therefore mutually recognised with other health and safety assessment schemes, vitally important if you or your colleagues work at height.
We set up FASET with one ultimate goal in mind, to be the one-stop location for all things training, guidance and support in an industry where safety is paramount. We believe the level of service we offer to our members has shaped us to be the leading trade association in the industry.

Working from height in the rail industry
Working from height isn’t unusual for those maintaining the railways, with everything from mobile elevated working platforms to ladders all common place. But one thing they all share is the importance for those working at height to operate responsibly.
Although in the majority of cases, any falls may result in no or minor injuries, unfortunately there are too many examples of the consequences being far more serious.
In the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) annual figures for 2019/20, 111 people were killed at work – 29 were from falls from height. The construction sector still accounts for the largest number of fatalities at 40 – up from 30.
