DESCRIPTION

BS 8411:2019


This standard BS 8411:2019 Safety nets on construction sites and other works. Code of practice is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 91.220 Construction equipment
  • 13.340.60 Protection against falling and slipping
  • 91.200 Construction technology

This British Standard provides recommendations on the safe use, installation and effective maintenance of safety nets on construction sites and other works where there is a risk of fall. It is intended for use by designers, engineers, safety net installers, end users and authorities having jurisdiction, for example the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

It is applicable to safety nets that conform to BS EN 1263‑1:2014 and that are installed within the positioning limits given in BS EN 1263‑2:2014. However, as these standards give specific minimum size limits, this British Standard also gives guidance on how to assess the reliability of safety nets outside these limits.

NOTE Advice is given in Annex A.

This British Standard covers safety net systems “S”, “T” and “U” as given in BS EN 1263‑2:2014, Clause 5, Clause 6 and Clause 7 respectively. It does not cover system “V” (Clause 8).

This British Standard does not cover tensioned access platform nets, which are intended for persons to stand on either for access, egress or work.
