Cable based vertical lifelines and ladder davits with self-retracting lifelines.

The OSHA update to the 1910 general industry standard for fall protection included a major change aimed at the unsafe use of cages on ladders for fall protection. New fixed ladders that extend over 24ā€™ above a lower level must be equipped with a personal fall arrest system. Over time, all existing ladder over 24ā€™ must also be retrofitted with a vertical fall arrest system.

One of the challenges with ladder fall arresting systems is determining if the ladder is capable of supporting the loads of a personal fall arrest system. Many ladders were never designed with the intention of being able to take the loads and forces that occur during a fall. This is why having an experienced fall protection engineer on your team is especially important.

It is important to ensure that your vertical fall arrest system does not create any additional hazards to your workers. Your Safeguard fall protection specialist will not only evaluate the dimensional aspects of your ladder but also the means of entry and exit from the system to provide a solution that protects your workers not only during the climb but also during access.
