Fall Safety ABCs - Connectors

Stay Safe & Secure to Your Anchor Point with the Proper Connector

Connectors are attached to the worker's full-body harness and to the anchorage point. Connector types will vary depending on the application, connecting for personal fall arrest or positioning and travel restriction.

Connectors for personal fall arrest is often a shock-absorbing lanyard or self-retracting lifeline (SRL). Both of these connector options will be equipped with an energy-absorbing element to reduce the force transmitted to the user's body in the event of a fall.

Connectors for positioning and travel restrictions are typically a lanyard intended to reduce the potential for entering a fall hazard zone or free-falling from a distance of less than 2 feet.

  • Lanyards can come in the form of positioning lanyards or shock-absorbing lanyards.
  • Self-retracting lifelines retain tension on the lifeline at all times, staying out of the worker’s way while providing safety.
  • Vertical lifeline systems allow for safety, mobility and productivity in vertical climbing environments.

Learn More About Connectors & Choosing the Correct Connection for Your Job

Stay securely attached by learning more about the different connectors that keep your harness attached to the anchorage point.

Connectors come in a variety of styles for different industies, jobs & applications. Learn more and get a high-level safety overview about connectors from our QSSP Safety Specialist Pat Monahan. In the video you will learn about the different styles of connectors, choosing the right connectors & proper inspection of your connector.

What Kind of Connector Do I Need?

Fall Safety Lanyards

Lanyards

Lanyards can come in the form of positioning lanyards, which control where a worker can go to keep them from hazards, or shock-absorbing lanyards that contain an energy absorbing unit to limit fall arrest forces experienced by a worker during a fall.

Fall Safety Self-Retracting Lifelines

Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs)

Self-retracting lifelines retain tension on the lifeline at all times, staying out of the worker’s way while providing safety. This helps shorten the fall distance and minimize trip hazards, and also offers greater mobility and maneuverability, which may help increase productivity. Lengths range from 6 to 175 feet. Also commonly referred to as a yo-yo or yo yo on construction sites.

Fall Safety Vertical Lifeline Systems

Vertical Lifeline Systems

Vertical lifeline systems allow for safety, mobility and productivity in vertical climbing environments. They include rope grabs as well as cable-based ladder safety systems and can be portable or permanent, mobile or manual, assisted or non-assisted.

Lanyards & Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRLs)

Choosing Between Shock-Absorbing Lanyards and SRLs & Understanding Features

When choosing a connecting device such as a lanyard or self-retracting lifeline, it's important to consider the conditions of your work environment. From harsh marine and mining, to oil and gas, to general industry, getting the best use out of a connecting device depends on selecting the right product for the application and the environment.

Fall Safety Lanyard or Lifeline Material

Lanyard or Lifeline Material

For general purpose applications that are indoors or in less-harsh environments, web material is appropriate. For extremely harsh environments, cable or Kevlar®/Nomex® fiber web offers extra durability and is suitable for abrasive or high-heat.

Fall Safety Single-Leg or Twin-Leg Configurations

Single-Leg or Twin-Leg Configurations

Single leg styles are suitable for a single anchor point connection to work within a specific range of movement. A twin-leg style offers a protective connection as the worker moves from one anchor point to the next for 100% tie-off.

Fall Safety Fall Clearance: More than 17-1/2 Feet

Fall Clearance: More than 17-1/2 Feet

An energy absorbing lanyard or self-retracting lifeline can be used.

Fall Safety Fall Clearance: Less than 17-1/2 Feet

Fall Clearance: Less than 17-1/2 Feet

If less clearance is present, the use of a self-retracting lifeline is recommended.

Vertical Lifeline Systems

Choosing the Right Vertical System & Components

Vertical environments require specialized systems selected for the specific application. Permanent systems need to stand-up to the elements for extended periods of time and require corrosion resistant galvanized or stainless steel construction, while temporary systems are often synthetic making them lightweight and easy to move from one location to another.

Fall Safety Flexible Cable Ladder Safety System

Flexible Cable Ladder Safety System

A permanent vertical fall protection system for often accessed structures such as ladders, towers or tanks that allows the worker to move up and down the entire height of the system. A sleeve connects the worker to the system and locks onto the cable in the event of a fall, allowing the user to regain their footing.

Fall Safety Rigid Rail Ladder Safety System

Rigid Rail Ladder Safety System

Consists of top and bottom entry/exit gates, rail joints, and multiple mounting bracket options designed to mount the rigid aluminum rail to the structure. A shuttle connects the worker to the system and locks onto the rail in the event of a fall, allowing the user to regain their footing.

Fall Safety Climb Assist Ladder Systems

Climb Assist Ladder Systems

Extremely tall or lengthy structures can be more easily accessed with an assisted system which provides weight relief to reduce worker fatigue and improve climbing longevity. Various styles of systems are available for both inside (wind turbine) and outside (oil rig) applications for added versatility.

Fall Safety Cable & Synthetic Rope Grabs

Cable & Synthetic Rope Grabs

Portable systems allow user to move up and down the entire height of the lifeline without disconnecting and having to find new tie-off points along the way. All-purpose synthetic type systems are standard, or choose wire rope cable systems for harsh environments. Mobile systems that automatically follow the user as well as manual systems that the user must fix in place for positioning or restraint are available.

Fall Safety Lifelines

Lifelines

Blended rope lifeline assemblies feature additional abrasion and UV resistance, for added durability, longevity and safety. Wire rope (cable) lifelines are also available for harsh environments. Various styles and lengths are available to suit any need.

Fall Safety Winch/SRL Anchor Type Ladder Safety System

Winch/SRL Anchor Type Ladder Safety System

These ladder mounted masts and posts are ideal for manhole entry and retrieval applications where a permanent fixed ladder exists. The systems simply attach to the underground ladder and provide an anchorage point for a winch or 3-way self-retracting lifeline.
