Freestanding Jib Fall Arrest System

Maximize safety while maintaining portability. FLS Jibs are Fall Protection Systems designed for applications that require a large work area in a limited space. The smaller frame allows trucks to be parked side-by-side during use but does not require the weight of the vehicle as the anchoring force. The 360 degree rotational boom provides a 5 ft. (1.5 m) working offset, and has the capacity to provide fall protection or a rescue system for one person. Forklift pockets simplify moving the system around a job site. Depending on the type of base, these systems are ANSI, OSHA and CE compliant.

The FLS Jib System includes periscoping rotation handles for turning the system into working positions and an installed rail with trolley.

OSHA REGULATIONS FOR PORTABLE SYSTEMS

This system meets ANSI Z359.6, OSHA 1926.502.

Anchorage strength requirements are dependent on each type of application. Below are anchorage strength requirements for specific applications:

  • Fall Arrest – The structure to which a personal fall arrest system is attached must sustain static loads applied in the directions permitted by the fall arrest system of at least: 5,000 lbs for non-certified anchorages, or two times the maximum arresting force for certified anchorages (designed by qualified person). ANSI Z359.2: When more than one personal fall arrest system is attached to an anchorage, the strengths stated above must be multiplied by the number of personal fall arrest systems attached to the anchorage. OSHA 1926.500 and OSHA 1910.140: Anchorages used for attachment of a personal fall arrest system must be independent of any anchorage being used to support or suspend platforms, and must support at least 5,000 lbs per user attached; or be designed, installed, and used as part of a complete personal fall arrest system that maintains a safety factor of at least two, and that is supervised by a qualified person.
  • Restraint/Travel Restraint – The structure to which a restraint system is attached must sustain static loads applied in the directions permitted by the restraint system of at least 1,000 lbs for non-certified anchorages, or two times the foreseeable force for certified anchorages. ANSI Z359.2: When more than one restraint system is attached to an anchorage, the strengths stated above must be multiplied by the number of restraint systems attached to the anchorage.
  • Positioning/Work Positioning – The structure to which a work positioning system is attached must sustain static loads applied in the directions permitted by the work positioning system of at least 3,000 lbs, or twice the potentialimpact load, whichever is greater. See OSHA 1926.502. ANSI Z359.2: 3,000 lbs for non-certified anchorages or two times the foreseeable force for certified anchorages. When more than one work positioning system is attached to an anchorage, the strengths stated above must be multiplied by the number of work positioning systems attached to the anchorage.
  • Rescue – The structure to which a rescue system is attached must sustain static loads applied in the directions permitted by the rescue system of at least 3,000 lbs for non-certified anchorages, or five times the applied load for certified anchorages. When more than one rescue system is attached to an anchorage, the strengths stated above must be multiplied by the number of rescue systems attached to the anchorage (re: ANSI Z359.2).
