How to Safely Use a Self Retracting Lifeline 

Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRL)

Self-retracting lifelines and lanyards are fall protection devices that immediately stop a fall. The retractable lanyard is typically attached to the D-ring of a workers safety harness. The self-retracting lifeline is designed to be placed above the workers head. In the event of a fall, an inertial breaking mechanism locks into place and prevents the user from falling more than a few inches. The cable or webbing retracts up into the housing to eliminate dangerous slack in the lifeline.
