Fall protection education has been a core company value here since our founding in 1994. Most of our clients appreciate the need for fall protection, but they don’t always understand the different approaches to fall protection or why we recommend one system style over another.
For example, many folks automatically equate fall arrest with cable-style horizontal lifelines, but limited fall clearance applications are better suited for rigid beam rail systems because they minimize deflection. It’s one thing to hear a fall safety specialist make these types of statements, but quite another to visualize the differences between the two approaches.
Whether you are looking for visual references of specific system types, a basic introduction to fall arrest systems, or information on common solutions to fall hazards in your industry, download our 28 page Fall Protection Systems Guide in pdf format. If you are a fan of paper, drop us a line, and we’ll send you a printed version instead.
Here’s a sampling of the applications and system styles featured in the guide:
- Crane Bays
- Rail Car Loading
- Fixed Ladders
- Oil Platforms
- Tank Farms
- Pipe Racks
- Horizontal Lifelines
- Single Point Anchors
- Roof Guardrail Systems
- Jib Arm and Rigid Rail Systems
