Supported Ladder Systems

Portable Supported Ladder Systems

Ideal for outdoor maintenance of transportation vehicles, the Mobile Supported Ladder System is a portable system that provides both passive and active fall protection.  The system features a fully guardrail enclosed work platform that is accessed through two spring loaded swing gates. The working surface of the vehicle is accessed through one spring loaded gate while the user is tied off to the active fall arrest rail. The supported ladder fall protection system is ANSI and OSHA compliant.

We are a complete turnkey provider of OSHA compliant portable and mobile fall protection systems and have years of design and installation experience.  Contact us for expert assistance with your fall arrest, fall restraint and fall protection safety requirements.

OSHA Regulations

  • Personal Fall Arrest Systems
    • 1926.502(d)(16) Personal fall arrest systems, when stopping a fall, shall:
    • 1926.502(d)(16)(ii) limit maximum arresting force on an employee to 1,800 pounds (8 kN) when used with a body harness;
    • 1926.502(d)(16)(iii) be rigged such that an employee can neither free fall more than 6 feet (1.8 m), nor contact any lower level;
    • 1926.502(d)(16)(iv) bring an employee to a complete stop and limit maximum deceleration distance an employee travels to 3.5 feet (1.07 m); and,
    • 1926.502(d)(16)(v) have sufficient strength to withstand twice the potential impact energy of an employee free falling a distance of 6 feet (1.8 m), or the free fall distance permitted by the system, whichever is less.
