Lanyards & Lifelines

The selection of your lanyard is as important as the proper selection of your full-body harness. Lanyards should be kept as short as possible to reduce the possibility of serious injury. OSHA mandates that free fall distances not exceed 6'.

An energy absorber should be part of a fall arrest system whenever possible, in order to ensure that forces incurred during a fall are less than the OSHA limit of 1,800 lbs. (Click Here for energy absorbing lanyards, Click Here for energy absorbing rope grabs or Here for self-retracting lanyards and lifelines.)

Care should be taken to prevent abrasions or cuts. Ropes with larger diameters have greater abrasion resistance.
Specify length when ordering. All lanyards, lifelines and positioning lines come standard with Model # 5155 (ANSI Z359.12 compliant) locking snaphook(s) with 5/8" gate opening.
