What are the key components of a fall protection system?
Nearly all fall protection equipment is made of 4 key parts.
- The anchorage and anchorage connector - The anchorage is usually referred to as the tie-off point. An example of an anchorage would be an I-beam or an engineered fall protection system like a Gorbel Tether Track System.
- The anchorage connector - The anchorage connector is used to pair the connecting device to the anchorage.
- The connecting device - The connecting device is the link that joins the body wear to the anchorage connector. Examples are a retractable lifeline or a shock-absorbing lanyard (shown above).
- The body wear - The body wear is the protective equipment worn by the worker also known as a fall protection harness.
