Self-retracting lifelines (SRLs) are fall protection devices designed to immediately stop a fall and work much in the same way a car’s seat belt does. When you reach a certain level of speed or force, the device’s locking mechanism engages, arresting the downward motion of the worker falling. This prevents the worker from falling more than a few inches. The cable or webbing retracts up into the housing to eliminate dangerous slack in the lifeline.
Levitt-Safety carries SRLs from 3M, Honeywell, and MSA that meet or exceed local standards. If you need help selecting the appropriate harness for your employees, get in touch with us today.
