Our Trailer-Safe System consists of four main components.
- A vehicle-based fall arrest system, consisting of a harness worn by the driver connected to the lanyard of a fall arrest block mounted on a rail in the load bed of the vehicle or on an overhead track fitted to the vehicle, allows the driver to work on the load bed without the risk of falling from the vehicle

- Side exclusion zones while working on a construction site to keep persons and traffic safely clear of the flat trailers whist unloading / loading
- Aluminium rear posts with netting provide rear edge protection and provide load containment
