The A, B, C’s of Personal Fall Protection
DBI-SALA & PROTECTA offers a complete array of passive and active fall arrest systems. The basics of every personal fall arrest system can be described as the ABC’s of fall arrest.

Anchorage means a secure point of attachment (structure) for the fall arrest system. The type of anchorage varies with the industry, the job being performed, the type of installation and the structure available. The anchorage connector provides a means of attaching the system to the anchorage (structure).

Full body harnesses provide a connection point on the worker for the personal fall arrest system. Depending on the application, they can be used as part of a system to protect the worker from falling and to limit the extent of potential injury in case of a fall.

Connectors are devices used to connect the worker’s full body harness to the anchorage system. Connectors include lanyards, snap hooks, carabiners,
deceleration devices and specialty systems such as self retracting lifelines, ladder climbing systems, vertical lifelines and rope grabs.

Rescue and retrieval of a fallen worker is a required component of any Fall Protection Program.
