Does a self-retracting lifeline need to be re-certified two years from the date I bought it from you or two years from the date I sold it to an end user?
A self-retracting lifeline needs to be re-certified two years from the date it enters the jobsite and every year thereafter.
Is there an expiration date on fall protection equipment?
While there is no known expiration date on fall protection equipment, we suggest that you refer back to manufacturer’s instructions and ensure that you always inspect your own personal equipment before each use. You should never share fall protection equipment and a competent person should annually inspect each piece of fall protection equipment.
If I have a shock absorber on my harness and my lanyard is not quite long enough for a new application, can I just add another lanyard to make it reach?
You should never connect a snap hook to another snap hook in a fall arrest system, you can order such thing as a D-Ring Extension to make up the extra length required.
Do the E4 & E6 energy absorbers carry the same deployment lengths?
No, and they also have different maximum arresting forces. The E4 will have a maximum deployment length of 3.5 ft or 42” and should have a maximum arresting force of 900lbf, where as, the E6 will have a maximum deployment length of 5.7 ft and carries a maximum arresting force of 1300lbf.
Can I write my name on my fall protection equipment?
You should never write on any fall protection webbing as this will deteriorate the webbing.
