Types of Fall Protection
With falls being the leading cause of injury in the workplace, fall protection equipment is crucial in order to keep workers safe, reduce liability, and keep productivity moving. However, between fall prevention, fall restraint, and fall arrest systems, knowing exactly which kind of protective equipment you need can be confusing. Fortunately, by remembering a few key differences, you will be well informed about their intended purpose to keep your workers as safe as possible.
Fall Prevention systems have one main goal: to prevent a fall before it happens. This kind of equipment includes physical barriers such as guardrails or covers over open areas, and it is especially ideal for rooftop safety. The simplicity of this system does not require any change in routine from workers, but the materials and installation can be costly.
Fall Restraint systems have the same goal as fall prevention systems, but are different in that they use anchors or horizontal lifelines to clearly define a work area and prevent a worker from getting too close to an unprotected ledge. These systems require the worker to wear a body harness and lanyard that links to either an anchor point or horizontal lifeline. Fall restraint systems are ideal when workers do not necessarily have to work close to the leading edge, but are still exposed on an elevated surface.
Fall Arrest systems have their own respective intention: to halt a fall in progress. Falls are inevitable in certain industries, so this kind of equipment is designed to eliminate the hazard of fall damage. Similar to fall restraint systems, fall arrest systems require the worker to wear a body harness and lanyard and connect it to an anchor point or lifeline systems. The big difference, however, is that fall arrest systems are precisely engineered to recognize that a fall is happening and react to keep the worker suspended in the air, thus avoiding a detrimental collision with the surface below. Fall arrest systems may be required when workers need to work at or near the leading edge.
