Rescue 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 [link] to visit our knowledge base.

In a perfect world, there would be no accidents. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world and whether we like it or not accidents do happen. But, being prepared can help prevent further injury. Rescuing a co-worker isn’t always easy, especially if they are in hard to reach places. That’s where rescue SRLs come in handy. Typically rescue SRLs, referred to as SRL-R by ANSI, for auto retrieval can be found on confined space systems.
