Hanging ladders/suspended ladders – Permanently installed climbing protection systems (26)

(+) A. ANCHOR POINT / STRUCTURAL ANCHOR FACILITY

The anchor point here has to do with the installation of the rail or steel wire rope upon the underconstruction. This is more a technical aspect of the installation of the system than how to choose my best ppe. Therefore we do not go into further detail here.

(+) B. BODY SUPPORT

Harness:
Basic requirement for any harness is conformity to EN-361.
If you need to do work positioning additional conformity to EN-358 is needed.
Suspension work implies harness conformity to EN-813.
SPECIFIC REMARK FOR THIS CASE:
IN ORDER TO CLIMB SAFELY AND WITH SOME COMFORT, CHOOSE A HARNESS WITH A FRONTAL D-RING, PREFERABLY ON THE WAIST BELT. THIS HELPS YOU WHEN YOU WANT TO LEAN BACK. SKYLOTEC HAS SOME HARNESSES EXPLICITLY DESIGNED FOR THIS FUNCTION
.

(+) C. CONNECTOR

Connecting devices:
Lanyards, work positioning lanyards, fall arrest blocks, ropes with fall arresters, karabiners, ascenders, descenders, etc.. Please see the various products you can choose.
SPECIFIC REMARK FOR THIS CASE:
ALTHOUGH THE RUNNER OF THE CLIMBING SYSTEM IS YOUR BASIC CONNECTOR DEVICE, YOU MAY NEED OTHER EQUIPMENT FOR THE WORK YOU HAVE TO DO. WE HERE LIMIT OURSELVES TO WORK POSITIONING LANYARDS.
For more useful tools you may need: please look at other work situation cases and see what you can find there.

(+) D. DESCENT or rescue

Rescue of a fallen person: Basic principle is that a rescue must be done within 15 minutes after a fall. The capacity to perform rescue after a fall is a basic legal responsibility.

(+) E. EDUCATION

Instruction / training. These are basic legal responsibilities. We can train and instruct you wherever you need it: at one of our training centers, or at your location, or wherever worldwide. Please contact us.

(+) F. FACTS

How to make sure that your safety measures are up to date: Records and documents must be stored adequately, with regard to legal responsibilities and product liability of the manufacturers / suppliers.
Periodical inspection: Anything related to personal fall protection has to be inspected at least 1 x every twelve months.
