Portable horizontal lifeline systems are specified when the need for fall protection is temporary in nature or when employees access areas that require infrequent service. Typical applications for temporary horizontal lifelines include construction sites, structural steel erection, bridge work, and pipe rack installations just to name a few. Remember–temporary work at heights is still subject to OSHA regulations. Fall protection is required for tasks performed at 4 feet or higher in general industry and 6 feet or higher in construction.
By connecting a portable steel cable or reinforced nylon rope to a series of portable anchor points or stanchions, workers can work safely and efficiently at heights without compromising mobility or range of motion. When used in combination with personal protective equipment, a temporary horizontal lifeline acts in a manner similar to a permanent HLL: the fall protection system can arrest a fall, limiting the amount of force that is transferred both to the worker and the stanchions. Portable horizontal lifeline systems offer ease of installation and provide an excellent mix of unencumbered movement and temporary fall protection that maximizes worker productivity.
