Join the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction. May 2 - 6, 2022.

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous in America, with falls from elevation accounting for 351 out 1,008 worker deaths last year (BLS). The National Safety Stand-Down raises awareness about fall hazards and fall related injuries before they happen by holding events all over the country!

This webinar will discuss some of the challenges and solutions associated with leading edge and sharp edge applications in the construction industry. Newer leading edge SRLs enable users to tie off at their feet in situations where there is no anchor available above the user’s head. However, many sharp edges exist on construction sites which can cause extreme danger to the SRL in the event of a fall over a sharp edge. This webinar will share how leading edge SRLs are designed to protect the user and the lifeline itself, including the use of energy absorbers to enable an SRL to arrest the fall without damage or failure.
