If you work on roofs or at heights, the risk of falling is great. To prevent falls, employees need to wear fall protection devices. The most common system is called a lifeline. When working on roofs, two types are frequently employed. These are the vertical and horizontal lifeline fall protection systems.
What Is Horizontal Lifeline Fall Protection?
Lifelines are equated with safety for workers at risk of falling from heights. This form of fall protection allows workers to perform vertical work securely. A lifeline kit consists of several components. With a horizontal lifeline system, an anchorage device and a body restraint device are the two major ones.
Horizontal lifeline fall protection may be either flexible or rigid. They tend to be temporary in position but are designed to be used more than once and for more than one worker at the same time. No matter what the specific purpose, they must meet specific technical and industrial standards in engineering, design and safety. We stock a great 100' Kernmantle Horizontal Lifeline kit from Malta Dynamics. It allows for 4 workers to be protected while permitting superior mobility over standard fixed anchors.
