In 2004 a decision was made to develop a range of industrial height safety products that could be manufactured by Beaver and sold into the market. This required development of designs in regard to styles and types of harnesses requiring hardware from outside sources, which could be used to manufacture products from the designs.
On completion of the product designs a test program was put in place so that the products could be tested to the requirements of the Australian and New Zealand standard 1891.1. During this period Beaver Brands premises were inspected by GlobalMark and developed a recording system for the factory that enabled Beaver to maintain licencing with GlobalMark.
All harnesses that were required had jig boards made to ensure consistency and conformity during manufacture. The development of this product required the development of an in-house testing system for dynamically testing the harnesses. Beaver uses this in-house testing system to conduct NATA accredited tests of Industrial Safety Harnesses in accordance with AS/NZS 1891.1
