The Problem: the roof itself is a Trip hazard

Working at height is essential to the maintenance of any large building. However, with elevation comes an increased risk of falls, which remain one of the leading causes of workplace injuries and fatalities in the industry. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), falls from height account for a significant portion of construction-related accidents each year.

Unfortunately, buildings aren’t always designed with safety equipment in mind. Roofs often change elevation, include different material types, and feature obstructions that make navigating their surface difficult, dangerous, and even deadly.

Having access to proper safety equipment is critical for Pacific Northwest workers as our rainy winters add additional slipping hazards. Fortunately, horizontal lifelines are an effective solution that can be designed and installed with minimum impact on the companies that employ them.

The Solution: A Horizontal Lifeline

Horizontal lifelines offer a reliable and effective solution to the problem of falls from height. Traditional fall protection systems such as guardrails and safety nets only offer passive fall protection: a barrier between workers and a dangerous drop. But when those systems finally engage, a worker who has slipped or tripped is already in extreme danger. In comparison, horizontal lifelines offer active fall protection by allowing workers to move along a horizontal plane while remaining securely attached to a lifeline system.

Horizontal lifelines consist of a cable or rail system installed along the span of a work surface, with anchor points attached every 30 feet. Workers wear harnesses connected to the lifeline via lanyards or self-retracting lifelines, allowing them to move freely and safely. In the event of a fall, the horizontal lifeline system absorbs the energy of the fall and arrests the worker’s descent, preventing them from hitting the ground or other objects below.

Key Features

Installs on:

  • Membrane Roofs: Creating permanent lifeline anchors on a membrane roof can be challenging, but our tools are up to the task.
  • Metal Sheet Roofs: For a solid connection on standing seam roofs.
  • Structural Roofs: Our lifelines can attach directly to underlying beam structures for a heavy-duty connection point.

Attaches by:

  • Overhead Attachment: A lifeline mounted directly above users.
  • Structural Attachment: The anchor point attaches directly to concrete, steel, or brickwork.
  • Non-Penetrating Attachment: In cases where penetrating the roof structure is not ideal, a non-penetrating attachment uses a weighted structure to create a permanent lifeline.
Durable Construction

Our horizontal lifelines are constructed from high-strength materials, such as stainless steel or galvanized steel, to offer long-lasting protection against the rigors of a construction environment and unforgiving Pacific Northwest weather.

Customizable Configurations

We offer a range of horizontal lifeline configurations to suit various worksite requirements, including single-span, multi-span, and engineered systems tailored to specific project needs. Our experienced team can work with you to design a lifeline system that meets your unique safety requirements and budget constraints.

Easy Installation

Horizontal lifelines are designed for quick and straightforward installation, minimizing downtime and disruption to construction activities. Our certified installers have the expertise and equipment to install lifeline systems safely and efficiently, ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations.

Versatile Applications

Whether it’s roofing, bridge construction, or industrial maintenance, our lifelines are versatile enough to accommodate a range of applications and work environments. From flat roofs to sloped surfaces, our lifeline systems can be customized to fit virtually any configuration or layout.

Compliance with Safety Standards

Lifelines also help companies significantly reduce the risk of falls and prevent costly workplace accidents. These precautions protect workers from injury and minimize the financial and legal risks associated with falls from height.

Benefits of Horizontal Lifelines

Get the confidence of personal anchor points without sacrificing flexibility. Horizontal lifelines are a win for safety, productivity, and budgets.

Enhanced Worker Safety

Horizontal lifelines provide continuous fall protection, allowing workers to perform their tasks at height with confidence and peace of mind. Lifeline systems help prevent workplace accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

Reduced Risk of Falls

Lifelines also help companies significantly reduce the risk of falls and prevent costly workplace accidents. This not only helps protect workers from injury but also minimizes the financial and legal risks associated with falls from height.

Increased Productivity

With the assurance of safety provided by horizontal lifelines, workers can focus on their tasks without the distraction of safety concerns, leading to improved productivity and efficiency. By eliminating the need for constant repositioning and readjustment of fall protection equipment, lifeline systems allow workers to work more effectively and complete tasks more quickly.

COST SAVINGS

Investing in lifelines can result in long-term cost savings by minimizing the financial burden associated with injuries on your work site. By preventing falls from height, lifeline systems help companies avoid costly accidents and liabilities, protecting their bottom line and preserving their reputation.

POSITIVE REPUTATION

Demonstrating a commitment to worker safety by implementing horizontal lifeline systems can enhance a company’s reputation as a responsible local employer and attract top talent in the northwest construction industry. By prioritizing the safety and well-being of their employees, companies can build trust with customers, partners, and stakeholders, positioning themselves as leaders in the industry.
