New Fall Protection Reduces Risk

Safety is of the utmost importance on the construction jobsite, and technology providers continue to come to market with new solutions to make the jobsite a little bit safer.

As one example, Honeywell announced a new line of PFLs (personal fall limiters) designed to prevent a severed lifeline and to protect a worker in the event of a fall, which could lead to severe injuries or death for construction workers and others working at height.

It is estimated as many as 80 percent of fall protection applications have the potential for a lifeline to come in contact with an edge in the event of a fall. There is tremendous need for a safety product that can protect against such a risk.

The TurboLite EXTREME consists of a durable cable lifeline for sharp-edge applications and is compliant with the industry’s most stringent safety standard for fall arrest devices (ANSI Z359.14-2014 Class B & LE). The TurboLite MAX includes a durable Web lifeline that is cut, abrasion, and chemical resistant for smooth edge applications.

While this is one example of the new fall protection technology, there are several other types out on the market to keep contractors safe.
