A typical Personal Fall Arrest System (PFAS) incorporates three components often described as the ABC’s of fall protection. The anchorage/anchorage connector, body support and connecting device, when used together, form a complete system for maximum worker protection. But don’t forget about another required component of any fall protection program — the descent, rescue and retrieval of a fallen worker.
Anchors are a secure point of attachment. Anchorage connectors vary by industry, job, type of installation and structure. They must be able to support the intended loads and provide a sufficient factor of safety. View Anchorage Safety Products
Body support is typically a full body harness. Harnesses distribute fall forces over the upper thighs, pelvis, chest and shoulders. They provide a connection point on the worker for the personal fall arrest system. View Body Support Products
Connectors such as shock absorbing lanyards or self retracting lifelines connect a worker's harness to the anchorage. View our Connectors
