Fall Protection: When Your Job Takes You to the Edge
In work sites of every variety, edges are much more common than people realize, and they may pose a greater risk than you'd expect. Whether you're laying roofing, traversing a beam, or simply working near the unprotected sides of an upper floor, falls over an edge are more hazardous than other falls.
Without specific protection designed for edges, traditional lifelines risk being severed and the force upon the worker in the event of a fall is significantly increased. Honeywell estimates that as many as 80% of fall protection users have applications in which a lifeline will come in contact with an edge in the event of a fall.
Join us to discuss the issues, applications, and solutions you need to eliminate this dangerous hazard.
