Removing the risk of falls through floor openings

By casting-in GRP mesh into floor openings such as service risers, it is possible to remove the risk of falls during construction, both for in-situ and pre-cast floor slabs. By only removing small sections of the protection where services are installed, the rest of the opening is left protected.

Feedback is welcome.
