What is a horizontal lifeline system?

horizontal lifeline system is made up of a cable or rail that spans a potential fall hazard, usually attached to the structure at set intervals. The worker then attaches themselves to the cable with a harness and lanyard. Horizontal lifeline systems are an extremely versatile means of providing protection when working at heights, and can even curve around corners! They can be attached at foot level when working on a top-level surface like a roof, or can be attached overhead when working in places like airline hangars and bus depots.
