Roof Safety Railing and Anchors
Roof fall arrest systems include an anchor system, body harness, and self-retracting lanyard or self-retracting lifeline (SRL) and are an active means of protecting workers from falls in elevated work environments.
Anchor Points come in many different styles. EFP has anchors for roofs, concrete, I-beams, vacuum, and tie-back straps.
Dead Weight Anchor Systems
Maintain a safe connection to a variety of roof structures with permanent or temporary solutions for roof fall protection.
Roof Fall Protection Kits
Roof kits come with complete fall protection systems featuring everything you need for your fall protection safety system.
Worker safety is paramount and choosing the most appropriate fall injury prevention system is essential. The correct selection, installation and use of safety protection equipment is critical to their effectiveness when arresting falls. In addition, government and regulatory agencies have increased penalties for noncompliance with fall protection standards.
Why Install a Roof Fall Arrest System?
Falls are a leading cause of traumatic occupational death.
- According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics - falls account for 8% of all occupational fatalities from trauma.
- According to OSHA - there were 680 workplace fatalities caused by falls in 2008
- There are an average of 2 fall related workplace deaths each day in the U.S.
Fall Arrest System Components:
ANCHORAGE: The action of securing lifelines, lanyards and safety devices to a base or the state of being secured; commonly referred to as a tie-off point. ANSI Z359 further defines anchorage as a fixed structural component such as a steel I-beam, girder, building support column or floor that can endure the forces exerted in arresting a fall.
CONNECTING DEVICE: An apparatus used to link the body support component of the system to the anchorage connector, examples of this are shock-absorbing lanyard, tie-back lanyard, retractable lifeline, rope grab and vertical lifeline, or similar mechanisms used to connect the body wear to the anchorage connector.
BODY HARNESS: A body harness secures a worker to an anchor point and in the event of a fall evenly distributes the forces across the body. A full body harness is a support device that distributes fall and gravity forces across the thighs, chest, waist, shoulders, and hips; and has a center back attachment, typically a D-ring, for connection to the fall arrest connecting device.
SUB COMPONENTS: lifelines, inertia reel, lanyard, retractable lifelines, rail system, shock absorbers, snap-hooks, rescue equipment, rope/wire grabs, buckles and adjusters, webbing, and D-rings
