Body Worn Self-Retracting Lifelines


No one wants to think about falling while on the job. But, sometimes accidents happen. It is up to us to make sure that in the event of a fall there are safety measures in place to ensure that everyone stays as safe as possible. That’s where an SRL comes into play. A Self-Retracting Lifeline, or SRL, is a device that contains a spring-loaded retracting web or cable lanyard wound around an internal drum. It automatically locks and arrests the fall of a worker.

When looking at SRLs it is important to understand the standards that they need to meet. ANSI Z359.14-2012 classifies SRLs into two classes - Class A and Class B. For more information about SRL standards click here for our blog post or here to visit our knowledge base.

A body worn SRL is a more compact version of a mounted SRL and works in the exact same way. The key differences are that it is smaller, lighter, and connects directly to the dorsal D-ring on your harness. Body Worn SRLs have shorter lifelines that most commonly range from 6 to 8 feet and do not exceed 8 feet in length. Another unique thing about body worn SRLs is the ability to have a twin leg configuration to provide 100% tie-off.
