Using a work positioning lanyard in the workplace can help you reduce your exposure to hazards and improve your comfort. When climbing over structures, a work positioning lanyard can help you avoid injury. It also allows you to work against a vertical surface without the risk of falling. It can also increase your comfort and increase your efficiency. You can choose from a wide variety of work positioning lanyards. However, you should use these lanyards only with a back-up fall arrest system.
Work positioning lanyards are usually made from rope, cable, webbing, or linked chain. The ends are usually terminated with a crimp or plated thimble eye. The lanyard is then connected to two Lateral D-rings on a work positioning belt. The length can be adjusted to fit your application. It is important to inspect the lanyard for wear and tear. You should also keep the lanyard taut during use. If it is loose, you should not work in a highly acidic or basic environment.
When used with a fall arrest system, a work positioning lanyard can prevent a worker from falling more than 2 feet. A fall in excess of 2 feet can be dangerous and can lead to serious injuries and even death. The lanyards also limit the wearer's range of movement, preventing him or her from moving into a dangerous area. When a fall is prevented, the worker can regain his or her footing and remain in the working position with both hands free.
Depending on your job, you can choose from different types of positioning lanyards. Some of these lanyards are adjustable, while others are not. You should also consider the type of work you will be doing. For example, if you are an arborist, you may need to choose a work positioning lanyard that has a rated connection point for a climbing saddle.
You can also choose to use a lanyard that has a retractable lifeline. These lanyards are ideal for use in high-risk environments where dropping objects can be fatal. You can also choose to use a shock absorbing lanyard. These lanyards are designed to absorb the energy from a fall, reducing injury.
Several lanyards are also designed to prevent you from falling off of a tower. They are also known as fall restraint lanyards. These lanyards are fixed between a harnessed worker and an anchor point, preventing a fall from occurring. In addition, they reduce the amount of energy the worker loses when a fall occurs. You can also choose to use a swivel lanyard, which allows you to swivel your body while wearing the lanyard.
You can also choose to use lanyards designed to work in conjunction with a personal fall arrest system. The lanyard will prevent you from falling off the tower, while the personal fall arrest system will prevent you from falling to a lower level. Choosing a combination of lanyards will allow you to keep both hands free while you are working at heights.
