Protecting people from a fall is a life or death situation. We believe in only offering fall protection equipment and systems that has been tested to meet the applicable OSHA fall protection standards.

What do you recommend for fall protection?

When it comes to recommending a fall protection product we always recommend using a safety hierarchy. A safety hierarchy identifies the safest possible solution to a hazard. Obviously eliminating the hazard is always the best solution.  Guardrails, skylight screens and other passive forms of fall protection are the safest and most effective forms of protection if you cannot eliminate the hazard altogether. 

If you cannot protect a hazard passively (guardrail, skylight screens, etc...), we then recommend working in restraint. Fall restraint means that the person is tied off in such a way that they cannot get to the roof edge or other fall hazard.

If restraint is not possible, then the last resort is fall arrest. Fall arrest products stop a fall that is already happening. Fall arrest can still be dangerous to the employee and requires diligent training and rescue planning.

What are the different kinds of fall protection?

The three different kinds of fall protection are passive, fall restraint and fall arrest. See this matrix for a full description of how these fall protection methods are different.

What is the most inexpensive form of fall protection?

We know that not every company has an unlimited budget for fall protection. While protecting lives is important, we also understand that businesses must evaluate costs. We have written a document to help you sort through the short and long term costs of your fall protection decision: Fall Protection Solutions Cost Comparison
