Safeguard offers the most innovative and inherently safe solutions for working at height within the oil and gas sector. Our product range will ensure the safety of workers in the harshest environments. These products are complemented by a number of value added services such as training, recertification, specification and a fully integrated in-house customer service team. These products can be used in a number of different scenarios ranging from general maintenance to rig up and rig down activity, servicing the pipe racks and ascending / descending the derrick ladder.
Horizontal Lifeline Systems (HLL)
A Horizontal Lifeline System provides customers with reliable engineered solutions for employees who are at risk of a fall while working at height. A Horizontal Lifeline System (HLL) includes a flexible line such as wire, rope or cable, with connectors at both ends for securing it horizontally between two anchorages or anchorage connectors.
There are two types of horizontal lifeline applications - permanent and temporary. A permanent horizontal lifeline is installed into a structure as a permanent anchor point. A temporary HLL means the system is easy to install and remove. For versatility, it can also be used on more than one jobsite. Applications include construction, building and roof maintenance and inspection tasks. Whatever the task, whatever the environment, Safeguard has a suitable fall protection solution available.
For oil and gas applications, vertical, horizontal and overhead cable fall protection systems can be designed to follow the often complex contours found on rigs, pipe racks, flare stacks, derrick ladders and gantries. These systems have proven reliability in the worst climatic and environmental conditions, both onshore and offshore.
These products meets all applicable OSHA, ANSI and CSA standards for fall protection.

The ManSafe Sealed SRLs (self retracting lifelines/inertia reels) provide the perfect fall protection solution for use in and around drilling platforms such as on the derrick or rig crown and ideally for all offshore work. Standard ManSafe SRLs feature a user friendly, 100% reliable locking mechanism, which needs only a visual, audible and tactile inspection on an annual basis. Their user-friendly modern design means the inspection and maintenance can conveniently be done onsite. This saves both time and expense by avoiding offsite recalibration/maintenance because the devices can remain on the rig.
Vertical Lifeline Systems (VLL)
A vertical lifeline system is made of a flexible line such as wire, rope or cable, with a connector at the upper end to allow a fall arrester device to connect the worker to the system. The arresting device automatically follows the user during the climb and locks onto the cable in the event of a fall, allowing the user to regain their footing.
Rope Grab/Lifeline Combinations still provide some of the most cost-effective solutions for fall protection needs. We offer the widest assortment of rope implements in the market ranging from automatic rope grabs to rope adjustors. All are constructed from quality corrosion resistant materials for long service life. Match the device with the lifeline product that most suits your needs. All automatics rope grabs are engineered to meet or exceed applicable ANSI, OSHA and CSA requirements.
