              conform to EN360 and EN1496,
              and  fitted  with  an  integrated
              rescue handle to enable rescue
              of  a  casualty  after  the  fall  has
              been arrested.
              Retrieval blocks are often fitted
              to  confined  space  systems,
              though are also often used as a
              stand alone fall arrest & rescue
              Having the winch built in to the
              Retractable Block, indicates that
              the user already has a Rescue
              plan, which is the requirement of
              the  Fall  Protection  directive  for
              work at height.
