Fall Protection and Fall Arrest System Design and Engineering

To be effective, fall protection devices and systems to protect workers must be used easily and consistently. “User friendly” designs ultimately provide workers with a fall protection system that enables them to do their job with minimum interference. Our design process begins on site with a series of co-design conferences with your workers, members of your management team and our project consultants to encourage the best solution for hazard control.

Engineering Fall Protection and Fall Arrest Systems

Our staff of structural engineering professionals designs each fall protection system to specification based on your facility. Our specifications include calculating pertinent factors such as dynamic load requirements, peak loading, soil bearing pressure and structural attachment points. The combination of these factors results in a properly designed and engineered fall arrest system.

Diversified Fall Protection’s experienced engineers have designed a wide range of fall protection and fall arrest systems in hundreds of settings. Our system designs have run the range from 150 foot vertical ladder safety systems, to structural steel uprights connecting horizontal lifelines crossing over rail cars and tank trucks, to 1,650 foot span crane rail safety systems. We will always work with you to provide optimal, safe solutions for your work force.

Since 1994, Diversified Fall Protection has provided customers with a complete, turnkey source for fall protection services. Today, you can rely on us to protect your workers with application-specific products and services that include fall arrest and fall restraint systems and personal protective equipment selection and training.
