What to Consider When Buying Fall Protection Safety Gear

If you or your employees work at heights regularly, you should consider purchasing fall protection equipment. The types of systems are:


  • Fall arrest. Arrest systems stop an in-progress fall. Of all the types of protection systems available, arrest systems offer the least protection because the risk of injury is high. Equipment is less expensive, but your employees must inspect and maintain the system every time it’s used. Extensive training is required.
  • Travel restraint system. Restraint systems offer more protection than arrest systems, but there is still a risk of injury. Daily maintenance and inspection are required to use a restraint system safely. OSHA acknowledges that restraint systems are better than arrest systems but prefers prevention systems. Extensive training is required.
  • Fall prevention. Prevention systems are the strongest equipment available, and OSHA prefers them because there is no risk of injury. Prevention systems, such as a guardrail, place a physical barrier between the worker and the hazard. In addition, prevention systems only require annual maintenance and inspection. No training is required.


What Safety Standards Should My Equipment Meet?

The equipment you and your employees use should comply with OSHA regulations. This will help protect those you care about from the risks associated with on-the-job falls. You’ll also protect your business from liability if you provide OSHA-compliant gear.

Keep in mind that OSHA does not verify that products are safe for employees to use at height. Instead, manufacturers design fall protection systems so they’ll comply with their regulations. You can verify that your D.E. Gemmill fall protection solution complies with OSHA by asking us for product documentation.

Industries That Use Fall Protection Systems

Many industries, such as roofing and construction, regularly use fall protection gear. But other industries, such as painting, heating and cooling, and window washing may also benefit when their workers use fall protection equipment.

If you’re unsure if your jobsite or industry requires the use of a fall protection system, ask yourself:


  • Do my employees work at heights over six feet?
  • Do my employees work on rooftops, catwalks, ladders or suspended platforms?
  • Do my employees work in open-air environments on upper floors?
  • Do my employees work on utility poles, rock walls or other tall areas outdoors where a fall hazard exists?


If you answered yes, you probably need a fall protection system in place for your workers. If you’re not sure, call us — we can help you choose the safety equipment that’s right for you.
