Height Safety - Lanyards Choices
There are an abundance of choices in lanyards and Pole Strap brands on the market, single lanyards, twin tail lanyards, rope, webbing, elasticated /stretch lanyards with varying attachment hardware. Double action hooks, Screw gate - Spring gate - Triple action karabiners. All of various sizes and lengths giving the utility industry numerous options and choices to suit specific work tasks.
This has often led to frustration from wrong products being purchased or mismatching hardware being used in a need to get something to comply.
The continuing demand for manufacturers to come up with practical, user friendly, lightweight, multi purpose use lanyards is not as easy as some may think.
Most of the new variations or designs are inputted from end users that actually use the equipment and have a need to have a special product created for their specific work task.
One of the frustrating issues we face as a specialist company, is we cannot control what is being used by whom or how in our industry. What may be right for one work task may be inappropriate for another.
The reality is you cannot get one product that will do all the work and that would eliminate all potential risks when working at heights.
Stay with known leading brands as they are generally at the forefront of technology, and in most cases have been through a lot of the design hurdles, and frustration to get things right eliminating re inventing the wheel.
The key is understanding the products being used, as all products have limitations.
Training in the equipment - training in work task.
Do not be afraid to ask questions - How is this used? What's the advantage of this design?
Accessing the work task, preparing with a work method (JSA) and using specific equipment suited to the task is taking a planned approach.
Balmoral Engineering can offer the right equipment and advice and are supported by leading Manufacturers.
