Haulotte launches fall prevention system

Haulotte FASTYN FASTN full installation

Haulotte is releasing its latest safety innovation at APEX, which opens today.

The FASTN device, installed in the basket, requires the operator to attach their harness to it while a MEWP is being used, otherwise an audio and visual reminder will be raised.

The ‘active anchorage’ system can be ins­talled easily on all types of MEWPs allowing a quick deployment within rental companies’ fleets.

FASTN works on the same principle as a car seat belt, with the objective is to create the same behaviour seen with modern car drivers whereby MEWP operators automatically you connect their harness to the basket.

“The plan was to offer a smart solution to tackle one of the leading cause of casualties on MEWPs, operator’s fall,” said a Haulotte spokesperson.

FASTN also features a wake up function. If no operator movement is detected, the system will alert the worksite to a potential operator distress. An anti-bypass function on the device also alerts the worksite of a potential misuse.

Another function means that FASTN can detect a potential operator fall or ejection and directly alert the worksite for a quick rescue.

All the events are recorded by the FASTN control box and provide data towards KPI reports. Haulotte added that the device will help rental companies enrich their safety and digital offering and for construction companies to support their zero accident strategies.
