Fall Protection Tools
Anyone who is performing maintenance or surveying and those that work in any industrial settings that require them to be at substantial heights, including as roofers and builders and others, will find that fall protection tools and training is absolutely essential. Any individual who will be working while at considerable heights will need to know the safety practices that will protect them and their fellow colleagues and provide them with the needed protection should something happen. Employers are required by law to follow strict rules and procedures as well as providing the appropriate equipment to their staff and required to make certain their staff are following those procedures. The staff needs to be trained on how to use the equipment properly and what to do if they fall or slip and are consequently injured.They need to know how to work safely so the don’t put their colleagues at risk.
Fall protection starts by wearing your safety harness. It is necessary for the harness to fit correctly and it must be tethered appropriately so that if a fall happens, the harness is able to prevent an injury from occurring. The harness has to be rated for the weight of the person that is using it and it has to give enough room so that the individual can move easily and actively while doing their job without compromising their safety. The best harnesses will have several points of adjustment that provide adequate security while also allowing for comfort and mobility. The harness should have padding in the shoulders and elsewhere so that if a fall happens it can protect the individual without causing them a great deal of discomfort and prefent the fall itself.
Working At Heights
It’s necessary that anyone working at heights have the right equipment and proper training. Anyone who is working above ground level or that in any way has a risk of falling is classified as someone working at heights. In some situations, equipment such as scaffolding, a ladder, or an elevated work platform that’s mobile can give a worker adequate protection. In other situations, it is a requirement that the employee has latches and harnesses to prevent them from falling because the distance is too much to risk and can be avoided with the right equipment.
Construction workers often require the ability to freely move and this means a body harness is the most appropriate safety tool for this situation. If it’s around their waist and over their body, as well as their shoulders and it is then secured to an anchor which is strong enough to hold should an individual have a fall happen, then it can prevent an injury. This allows the construction worker to regain their footing or to prevent them from falling beyond the length of the cord their harness is connected to. This not only protects the worker but also allows them to work more confidently while doing so. This means they are often able to work faster while maintaining quality of workmanship because they can focus on the work instead of the danger that would otherwise be present.
Any system that is used to prevent a fall will require having some type of cord connected to a harness that catches the person in the event of a fall. The corridor lanyard has to be rated at a level high enough to handle the weight of the individual using it. It is not uncommon for a lanyard to have a rating of only about 100 kg. For workers who are tall or heavier, this often is not enough and will require the use of a cord that is rated for more weight. It is important to remember that a system used to prevent falls is only as good as the weakest part of that system. If even one part of the system fails in the fall then the whole unit fails and this leads to injury. Different fall prevention systems are rated for different industries and you should use the one rated for the particular industry you’re in. You can shop with confidence knowing that these products come with clear recommendations on what conditions they are appropriate for.
It is common for people in the industry to debate over the aspects of fall arrest but the most important thing is that someone should always try to avoid risk when they are working high up where there’s risk of falling. They need to do everything possible to avoid hazards that can lead to a fall happening. Systems made to protect against falls are used when the things mentioned above have taken place and the fall still happens. In a work environment that requires someone to work high in the air, they need to understand that this is not a recreational situation such as rock climbing.
Guardian Fall Protection
One of the best-known systems is Guardian. Guardian makes several products and among them are full body harnesses, anchor points, and several others. This company is American-based and it makes retractable lifelines, harnesses, lanyards, and other products that you would look for in this type of industry. All of their products are made specifically for their designated uses and they provide the maximum possible safety available.
Fall Arrest System
This is something that is meant to offer protection when all else fails. Even so, it doesn’t mean that it won’t be used very often. Some of these systems are made when a person is working in a vertical position while others are made to protect workers who are regularly around edges. Some are made to attach to permanent or temporary anchors while others are specifically made to be mobile which allows workers to move them as necessary when working on large structures. Any employee who is working under these circumstances will need to understand the necessity of keeping themselves anchored a hundred percent of the time. This means when a situation arises and the fall protection is in place, it will keep them from being injured.
Full Body Harness
In the case that you fall, then the lifeline itself is connected to the harness that you’re wearing to prevent that fall. There are situations where it’s possible to attach the lifeline to your belt but this is highly discouraged because if the belt were to fail, then the person would still fall. Additionally, it would be very uncomfortable when you fall. In contrast, a harness that fits the entire body is much more comfortable because the weight is spread out across the entire harness. If somehow the strap were to fail on the harness it would still be able to protect you because of the other points that haven’t failed. Regardless of whether there was a manufacturer defect, or it was cut in the fall, or some other reason, the other points of contact would still be capable of preventing the fall.
Fall Protection Harness
This type of protection requires that it fits properly because otherwise, you could slip out of it. It’s also important that it be made with a rating that is appropriate for the individual’s weight. Quality harnesses are made to have several areas of adjustment so that they fit the person comfortably and offer substantial protection. The harness should allow you to move freely while working. It should be strong and it should fit fairly snug and have an area that is reinforced and made to connect to the lanyard. The highest quality harness will also offer padding around areas such as the shoulders to make them more comfortable. Making equipment that fits properly and that is comfortable and allows the workers to move freely is important because often even in the most professional situations many don’t take safety seriously but this helps the employer by providing equipment the employees will actually use.
Work At Height Safety
Training should be provided on a regular basis for those working at great heights. Even those who will only be working under these conditions for a short time. They will need to be regularly trained to make sure they are capable of working safely. They will need to be shown how to put on and wear their harness correctly and how to secure their lanyard so that it is capable of protecting them in the case of a fall. Anyone who works under these conditions on a regular basis should be given extra training to make sure that they don’t get slack in the safety measures they take. The refresher courses reminds them of the importance of safety not only for themselves but those they work around and it refreshes their memory of how to do it.

Anyone who regularly works on rooftops is in danger of falling. It’s fairly common in the industry for those working with small companies to simply use ladders on fairly flat roofs. It’s not uncommon for them to take their chances on slightly slanted roofs as well. For their safety it’s essential they wear a harness. It only takes one time for a person to slip or to step onto a weak part of the roof for an accident to happen.

You can get lanyards for vertical and horizontal safety. They are perfect for those who work on a slope or while working on the edge of something tall. Depending on the work environment you will want to make sure to get the correct lanyard for the particular Stop you’ll be using it for. There are some that are not made for working on the edge because they might get snagged.
Fall Protection Training
We can offer both the equipment and the training needed for fall protection. Equipment is always just a part of safety but understanding its importance and how to use it properly is just as important. If employees don’t use it even when it’s available then it’s not really helpful. If they use it incorrectly then they may still be at risk even when using the equipment. Getting the comprehensive training that we can provide will give each employee the knowledge they need to be safe whenever they’re working high up. Learn more about our crane pros here.
