Facelift has provided ZT Harnesses and training on site at the Network Rail Farringdon Thameslink Project to support their vision for achieving the highest standards of Health and Safety.

Connecting East and West London the programme will be the largest addition to the south east rail network in 50 years, with the main construction works to be complete in 2017. Health and safety management is critical to the success of the the Network Rail Farringdon Thameslink Programme as it aspires to build Crossrail in a way that achieves exemplary levels of Health, Safety and Environmental performance with safety as of absolute paramount. 

The ZT Safety Harness was introduced to companies working on the Crossrail Programme by Bruce Lever, of Facelift's Rail Division, who has been actively promoting the benefits of the harness to the rail industry. The ZT Rail Harness is the only harness on the market developed specifically for the rail industry, the harnesses supplied were full body flame retardant coveralls, with flame retardant harness built in, FR standards in line with EN531, EN ISO 11612:2008, EN1149-5:200.

The key features that appealed to the client were the harnesses usability and the elimination of risk from fall suspension trauma compared with a standard 5 point harness.

As part of Facelift's full service, IPAF MEWP harness inspection and fitting training was provided for six delegates on site at Crossrail's Farringdon location in central London.
