Fall Protection

People working at heights can use fall protection safety items to avoid falling or reduce the risk of injury if they do. On-body items, such as safety harnesses and connecting devices, are worn on or attached to the body to prevent falls or mitigate their effects. Guardrails, skylight guards, and confined space systems are examples of off-body items that are installed on physical structures to prevent falls. Tool tethering and dropped-object solutions attach tools to anchor points, reducing the risk of injury to employees and bystanders when objects fall from great heights. Construction, mining, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, welding, and telecommunications are just a few of the areas where fall protection equipment are commonly employed.
