Tool Box Talk Horizontal Lifelines Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Horizontal Lifelines app is a toolbox talk app that covers the use of horizontal lifelines.
How does it work?
Horizontal lifelines are synthetic or wire rope that are suspended or rigged between two anchor points. These systems allow workers wearing full-body harnesses, or other harness devices, to use fall arrest systems such as a self-retracting lanyard, self-retracting lifeline, shock-absorbing lanyard, or other fall-arrest system to allow for working on a vertical plane moving across a work surface easily, and without needing to regularly adjust or move a ladder. Permanently installed systems are designed to withstand large external forces and should be installed by a professional engineer, while temporary systems are designed for shorter term use, and should be installed by a competent person, and should be a pre-manufactured system for commercial distribution. This app facilitates a discussion on the use of these systems.
