If you are trying to decide between a Horizontal Lifeline System on your roof versus a Non-penetrating Guardrail System, consider the following:
||Horizontal Lifeline & Anchors
|Engineering must verify that your building structure can support the fall arrest loads.||NOT REQUIRED||REQUIRED|
|Roof penetration and sealing to accommodate anchors.||NOT REQUIRED||REQUIRED|
|Installation by a certified installer of horizontal lifelines.||NOT REQUIRED||REQUIRED|
|Training all employees who use the horizontal lifeline system.||NOT REQUIRED||REQUIRED|
|Annual inspections required on all fall arrest systems (semi-annual if in California).||NOT REQUIRED||REQUIRED|
Non-penetrating guardrail systems have many advantages over horizontal lifelines. There are exceptions and we will be glad to discuss them with you.
