Fixed Overhead System - Call Outs

Fall Arrest Horizontal Lifeline: The rigid track or cable Horizontal Lifeline provides an overhead means of tie-off to reduce the chances of a swing fall and fall distance. This lifeline runs the desired length to allow the user to have access to the work area.

Retrieval System: Safety starts at the ground level. Our pulley retrieval system allows the user to access the fall arrest system before even attempting to climb the vehicle or equipment that is going to be worked on.

Connecting Means: A trolley that is designed to glide over the rigid or cable horizontal lifeline system. This feature keeps the fall arrest system directly above the user to reduce the chances of a swing fall.

Fall Arrest Device: The self-retracting lifeline is utilized to reduce the arresting forces of the fall on the user and minimize the fall distance.

Full Body Harness: Only a full body harness can be used in a fall arrest system such as the freestanding fall protection system. The harness reduces the forces of the fall on the body and also keeps the user in an upright position when properly worn.

The fixed overhead fall protection system has been utilized for many different applications over the years. Here is the summary of some of the fall hazards that we overcame with the fixed overhead system:

BUSES
For indoor bus bays that require employees to work on engines or other or other equipment located at roof level a hazard is created.

TRUCKS
To secure tarps on top flatbed trailers, or sample product from tankers or perform maintenance work on waste trucks we have used the Fixed Overhead System to resolve fall arrest needs.

RAILCARS
Hopper cars that require continuous fall protection coverage over several cars or coverage to access the hatch for a tanker car.

ASSEMBLY
A custom fixed overhead system to access specific areas of the shop floor where employees need to work at heights to complete the production process.

EARTH MOVERS
CAI’s fixed overhead systems are MSHA Compliant and ideal for safely accessing the top of large earth moving equipment.
