Fall Protection For Ladders & Towers Utilizing Vertical Lifelines & Ladder Davits
The two most common solutions for ladder fall arrest systems are cable based vertical lifelines and ladder davits with self-retracting lifelines. These systems are easily installed on new or existing ladders.
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.
A Complete Solution for Fall Safety
It is also important to ensure that your vertical fall arrest system does not create any additional hazards to your workers. Your FLS 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.
