Fall protection is one of the major issues facing workers today.

Gorbel is a name familiar in the safety industry and it's Fall Arrest Anchor System can protect workers at dangerous jobs. This system includes an anchor, a body harness, and a connector. The connector might be a shock-absorbing lanyard or a self-retracting lifeline, varying based on the demands of the job.
