Safety Alerts

Beware of Urban Climbers

FASET has issued a Safety Alert about urban climbers. Fortunately an extremely rare occurrence, the Association is nevertheless warning of the dangers posed by urban climbers determined to misuse safety nets by taking their sport to new and bizarre extremes, not only putting themselves at risk, but also by compromising the integrity of the net and its subsequent ability to safe lives and prevent injury in the event of a genuine fall from height.

FASET is urging vigilance to prevent climbers gaining access in the first place, and, if they do, to make sure afterwards that the nets are professionally inspected and checked for damage.
