Preventing falls is a major concern when it comes to keeping your workers safe. When heights are a concern, fall protection lanyards become a crucial piece of fall protection safety.
A fall protection lanyard is made from ropes, cords or wires and connects a harness to a secure anchor point, preventing the wearer from falling to the ground. Fall protection lanyards also connect personal tools and other light equipment with the body to prevent losing and accidentally dropping.
Different situations call for different fall protection lanyard lanyards that address the specific work environment. Associated Scaffolding has a large selection of fall protection lanyards that will keep you safe in any environment.
There are two types of fall protection lanyards: 1) fall restraint lanyard and 2) fall arrest lanyard. A fall restraint lanyard prohibits the wearer from reaching a hazardous position where a fall might occur and is often adjustable with one end attached to an anchor and the other end attached to the wearer.
A fall arrest lanyard is used in situations where fall hazards can’t be avoided. This type of lanyard has an energy-absorbing element that reduces the impact force on the wearer’s body and on the anchoring point and is typically made of rope, webbing, or cable.
