Fall Protection Systems

HoistsPartsLine CardFall ProtectionContact information

OSHA regulations state that fall protection is required for any situation where a worker is 4 or more feet off of the ground for general industry. Each fall situation is different and requires careful consideration as to what type of fall protection is best suited for the application. Industrial Handling Services, Inc. offers several manufactures of fall protection and can help you with selecting the proper system to suit your needs.

Rigid Horizontal Lifeline systems are quickly becoming the industry standard in fall protection. These systems do not flex or sag, reducing the fall distance and impact forces to the worker. These systems also do not create any horizontal pull forces on the anchorages and do not have to be replaced after a fall event.
Industrial Handling Services, Inc. is a dealer for Spanco, an industry leader in rigid lifeline systems. If you would like further information, please click on the Spanco link below or call our office.
Horizontal Lifeline Systems (HLL) consist of a cable and IS attached to two or more anchor points on a crane runway, bridge, rooftop or other elevated work area.
Horizontal lifelines do not require time consuming fabrication and installations, are lighter, have smaller footprints and can be used when there are no overhead structures to anchor to.
HLLs may seem as simple as running a line between two supports, however, determining the applied loads to the anchorage and fall distance can be complicated.
Vertical lifeline systems allow the worker to move up and down the length of a ladder without having to disconnect and find new tie-off points. Workers connect to the lifeline by a deceleration device that travels with the worker as they climb or descend. In the event of a fall, the deceleration device engages and locks, arresting the fall.
