Electrical Safety Trainers

Rock Fall has developed what it said is the first Electrical Safety Trainer available in Europe.

A multi-award winning second generation family owned business, Rock Fall has positioned itself at the forefront of the electrical safety footwear industry as a leading manufacturer of linesmans boots and dielectric insulating boots to meet the ever-changing demands of the power transmission and distribution industry.

Recognising the strong growth and focus on clean energy and sustainability around the world Rock Fall have developed the first Electrical Safety Trainers available in Europe.

Certified against European and International Electrical Hazard standards the safety trainers are designed to protect wearers against electrical risks up to 18kV in accordance with the ASTM F2412-11 test method.

The range is in stock in the UK and available exclusively from the largest PPE resellers in the UK, including Thorne & Derrick.

The range, which has already been recognised by the industry for Innovation at the recent Professional Clothing Awards is driving quick and significant growth in Australia and New Zealand, with major electrical contractors specifying the products for their electrical operations.

The electrical hazard trainers comply with European and American Standards:

  • EN ISO 20345:2011 SB P E FO WRU SRC
  • ASTM F 2413-11 1/75 C/75 EH PR

Speaking about the development, Richard Noon said:

“Electrical risks are increasing as the prominence of hybrid and fully electric vehicles continues to grow. In manufacture, service and at the end of life these vehicles must be handled safely using correctly specified electrical safety equipment.

Electric Vehicles aren’t the only driver for this, as we increase the pressure on our electricity networks, there will be even greater demand for preventative maintenance and work on live lines.

Increased pressure can cause accidents and to have an additional item of PPE to be the last line of defence, in our opinion is critical.

We have seen from the great improvements in Safety Management during the Crossrail project.

With HS2 electrification high on the agenda, from the view of a Electrical Safety Equipment manufacturer it’s important that our industry makes the most of these major infrastructure projects.”
