Who makes a decent fall arrest/protection system, that's safe but doesn't break the bank?
So is there a number that an average person pulls when they fall?Sala seems to be the best known brand.
Our local guy has a truck with a little crane thing that simulates falls by dropping weights. It is amazing how much force is generated on the body in just a short fall.
The OSHA standard is a little bit un-attainable, in that it requires an anchor point capable of holding 5,000 pounds (actually 5200, I think). Look around your job and see if there is anything that you would feel good about hanging two and a half tons from.:no:
This guy with the truck, the Sala salesman, rigs up a 200 pound weight and drops it without a de-acceleration device and it registers around 2,000 pounds. With a deacceleration device, it hits around 600 pounds. I think the OSHA standard is 900 pounds.So is there a number that an average person pulls when they fall?
I've got a deck coming up with a gnarly 15' drop over some nasty landscape.Mike,
what are you going to be using it for.
there are different applications for each use,
the fall protection in a bucket is for roofs and other elevated surfaces .
For decks, you could use other methods
Now that's interestingThis one is on my amazon wish list. Has a hose built in to the line.
