Gallows Lifeline Systems
Gallows horizontal lifeline systems are particularly well suited for fall arrest in applications where height restrictions preclude the use of HLL installations at foot level. By placing the fall protection system overhead, a fall can be arrested before a worker strikes equipment or the ground below. Gallow style HLL’s are often found in rail car, mass transit, and truck applications, just to name a few.
If you are new to this form of horizontal lifeline, you may assume that the structural steel columns, horizontal beams, and the stainless steel cable and shuttle are the most important parts of these systems. Although each of these components plays an important role in keeping workers safe, the portion that is only slightly visible–the concrete foundation–is key to ensuring safe and reliable system operation. This is why working with a fall protection with in-house engineering capabilities (including PE)–is critical. Our turnkey approach to fall protection means that we assume sole responsibility (and liability) for each phase of your project: design, fabrication, installation, training, inspection, and re-certification.
Remember, falls are the leading cause of occupational injuries and fatalities each year, and the financial impact of an accident is enormous for both your employee and your company. Ensure worker safety and OSHA compliance with an engineered gallows style horizontal lifeline from Diversified Fall Protection.
