and Aerial Lift Fall Protection/Restraint
|Elevated Order Picker Fall Protection
Body Belts are no longer
acceptable to OSHA as part of a fall protection
system as of January 1, 1998.
The following systems listed
below are options you will want to consider when
choosing proper fall protection/fall restraint
for elevated order pickers:
A full body harness combined with
a very short or adjustable length lanyard to create
a fall restraint system. Please note this will
require you to specify the right length of lanyard
for the height of your operators and the position
of each lift's anchor point. One lanyard will
not fit all people and applications; you may have
to use several lengths depending on the situation.
You can also use adjustable lanyards which provide
greater flexibility, however many times operators
simply adjust them to the maximum length, therefore
removing its ability to restrain a fall and defeating
the purpose of the system.
Full body harness and a self-retracting
life line, be sure if you use this type of lanyard
that a fall to a lower level is not possible.
We do not recommend using shock absorbing lanyards
for Elevated Order Pickers since there is a chance
of falling to a lower level, which is prohibited
by OHSA when picking at most heights.
We do not supply fall protection of any type for
Aerial Work Platforms, contact your local Aerial
Work Platform dealer or the manufacturer of the
Aerial Work Platform for more details.
