    go hand in hand with implementing an effective fall protection plan in commercial industrial and construction workplaces preceded by making assessments about existing hazards OSHA regulations apply to elevations of four feet in general industry workplaces five feet in shipyards six feet in the construction industry and eight feet in longshoring operations and also when working over dangerous equipment and machinery regardless of the distance More is at issue than just equipment installation and a proper fall protection plan should incorporate the following in order of preference 1 means to eliminate hazards wherever possible 2 preventing falls by guarding or restraining workers from access to roof edges or other hazards that cannot be eliminated 3 arresting falls after they occur and 4 applying administrative controls and techniques when no other method is possible Throughout all of this is the need to properly train workers to enable them to recognize hazards and to safely perform their jobs Items 2 and 3 are commonly referred to as fall protection systems Do You Know What Type of System You Need These systems can be broken down into two primary categories 1 Passive or Collective Neither special equipment nor active participation on the part of the worker is required Instead they work independently of any individual worker and provide protection by restricting access to the hazard Examples include guardrails skylight screens roof hatch covers and personnel rated safety nets 2 Active Requires the use of personal protective equipment PPE by the employee PPE includes for example a full body harness worn by the worker They also require a means such as a lanyard or SRL of connecting the harness to an anchor such as a horizontal or vertical lifeline or a single point anchor Because they require the participation of the worker who may have the wrong equipment or be untrained fatigued distracted or otherwise not engaged in the task at hand active systems are only recommended where the hazard cannot be eliminated and when it is not possible to use a passive system Active systems include Fall Restraint Systems in which the worker wears a full body harness and connects to an anchor with an SRL or lanyard that is short enough in length to prevent reaching the edge of the roof or other hazard and Fall Arrest Systems which are the backup plan to catch a worker who has actually fallen and which should be used only when there is no way the worker can do his job without being exposed to the hazard Click to Call or dial us at 1 855 279 2000 Click on the button above for help and to discuss your needs with one of our experts or use our quick contact form feel free to upload drawings or other information that might help us assess your needs Anchor Points Anchor points are the foundation of any properly designed system They come in many different shapes and sizes to accommodate any type of application Whether you need

    right type of anchorage for the specific location and the work being performed B Is For Body Harness A full body harness is available in many different styles however they are all designed to spread the forces that could be incurred in a fall away from the head and organs to the large bones and muscles It is critical that the right harness is selected for the work being done and that it is sized and adjusted to properly fit the worker who wears it Improper harness usage is one of the most common safety abuses and an ill fitting body harness may cause serious injury if the worker takes a fall and the harness fails to perform in the right way C Is For Connecting Devices Connecting devices link a body harness to an anchorage Two examples that are commonly employed are Self Retracting Lifelines SRLs SRLs come in varying lengths and styles and contain a mechanism that allows the lifeline to stretch out to its maximum length and automatically retract when the worker backs up or steps back Like seat belts they instantly lock when a sudden force is applied Because of the retraction and instant locking SRLs significantly reduce free fall distance and the consequent stopping forces applied to the body Historically SRLs were mounted to the anchorage due to their bulk and weight with the retractable end attached to the worker s back D ring The newer lightweight personal fall limiters designed to replace lanyards are mounted directly to the back D ring with the retractable end attached to the anchor point Lanyards Lanyards have a limited length i e four to six feet are mounted to the worker s back D ring and are attached to an anchor point on or near an elevated work surface They contain an energy absorbing shock pack While lightweight and cheap they have the disadvantage of greater free fall distance and require significantly more fall clearance when compared to an SRL D Is For Descent Or Rescue Descenders often overlooked are used to safely lower a worker to the ground at a controlled speed In a rescue situation they are used to retrieve a fallen worker Rescue systems are designed to connect to an anchor point above the fallen worker and then be attached either to the worker s D ring or to any part of his or her connecting device This allows the person to be safely rescued without placing the rescuer at risk Click to Call or dial us at 1 855 279 2000 Click on the button above to learn more about how FallProof s services and how we can help keep your workers safe or send us a brief note using our quick contact form You will be able to upload drawings and other materials to help with our preliminary evaluation of your needs Anchor Points Anchor points commonly referred to as single point anchors are another means of active fall arrest protection Probably the
