Fall Restrain System Vs. Fall Arrest System

Fall Restraint System: A fall restraint system is recommended when guardrails or personal lift devices cannot be used. When properly used, a fall restraint system prevents the worker from falling off an edge. Lanyards must be of fixed length to prevent the worker from reaching an area where they could fall.

Fall Restraint

Fall Arrest System: When a fall restraint system cannot be installed, a fall arrest system must be used. A fall arrest system does not prevent a fall, but instead it is designed to catch the worker with minimal injury. The components of a fall arrest system are as follows:

Fall Arrest

(A.) Connecting means (e.g., snap hooks)

(B.) Shock-absorbing lanyard, self-retracting lanyards and lifelines

(C.) Full body harness

(D.) Anchor point capable of supporting at least 5,000 lbs. per worker
