FASET (Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training)01948 780652
FASET (Fall Arrest Safety Equipment Training) is the established trade association and training body for the safety netting and temporary safety systems industry.
We have long been a foundation in supporting our 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.
FASET members work collectively to create a great amount of free to access guidance which can be downloaded from this website to help those working at height. The guidance created provides good practices for contractors and provides understanding of the working at height industry for clients.
Providing expert guidance and training for over 20 years
FASET was formed in 1999 when safety netting was a new industry in the UK. At that time, the industry was comprised of manufacturers and suppliers providing a plethora of mixed messages. FASET gave a single, clear and understandable voice to the industry.
We audit our members with a focus on specialists areas as well as general ones.
FASET has a standalone partner scheme with CSCS, giving employees who work at height proof of their training and qualifications with a card from the industry’s authoritative voice on temporary safety systems.
Membership signifies that your organisation works to the extremely high standards FASET operate at. Relevant contractors will often only work with FASET members. Membership entitles you to display FASET logo at your premises, printed materials and all other forms of communications for your business.
The FASET Health, Safety & Technical Committee meet regularly to develop and review a range of freely available guidance.
This guidance is aimed at increasing the safety of all trades working with and around safety nets and temporary safety systems.
FASET is recognised as a lead body in the temporary safety systems sector by providing training, assessment & competence cards (via CSCS).
FASET provides the GoSmart online card checker providing peace of mind that each operator is qualified.
You might be surprised by how many different types of Fall Arrest and Temporary Safety Systems FASET oversee – it’s not just safety nets!
All of this activity requires a number of different committees, involving the whole membership working together.
