Fall Restraint Arrest Lanyard Training

Fall Restraint Arrest Lanyard Training 

The training provided covers all aspects of fall arrest, work position and fall restraint lanyards and inertia blocks..

There are three categories of work
Careful consideration must be given to ensure that the safest solution is chosen when working at height.

Work Restraint
This category of work covers techniques that help to restrict the worker from falling over the edge.

Work Position
The lanyard used in this category is designed to suspend the worker in their work position. Remember it is advised when using this type of lanyard that you have a back up system in place.

Fall Arrest
This category is the only one that actually allows a fall to take place. What happens next is that the fall arrest reacts by arresting the fall in a controlled manner. The most important factor is to make sure that when using fall arrest that you have adequate clearance and there are no obstacles during a fall.
