Learn about Protecting Workers from Falls in Elevated Environments

A fall arrest system is an active means of protecting workers from injury due to falls. A complete personal fall arrest system includes an anchor, a body harness and a connector- such as a shock-absorbing fall arrest lanyard or self-retracting lanyard (SRL).

Using a Gorbel Tether Track Rigid Rail Fall Arrest System as your anchor provides workers with a high degree of mobility and freedom, while preventing falls to lower levels. Standard systems are designed to accommodate multiple workers, each weighing up to 310 pounds with tools.

Gorbel Tether Track Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for reducing the risk of injury in elevated work environments. Available in various configurations, including multiple track profiles and support center distances, fall protection can be easily customized to fit every budget and application. All systems are designed by qualified engineers to meet the OSHA 1926 Subpart M construction standard, as well as the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection code.

When using fall arrest systems, one of the most critical considerations is choosing a safe anchor point that offers total protection when used with full body harnesses and self-retracting lifelines (SRL).

With Tether Track, guesswork is removed from the process, as your workers are assured a fully engineered anchorage system developed for their specific job. After all, keeping them productive and safe is the essence of our system. The complete system, consisting of full-body harnesses, retractable lifelines, and Tether Track as the essential anchor, provides a high degree of mobility and freedom to perform tasks while stopping falls in the shortest distance possible.
