A complete roofer’s fall protection system is as easy as A, B, C. Every system requires an anchorage device, a body support and a connecting component.
Anchorage means a secure point of attachment (structure) for the fall arrest system. The type of anchorage varies with the roof, the number of users and the amount of mobility needed. The anchorage connector provides a means of attaching the system to the anchorage (roof).
(B) Body Support
Full body harnesses provide a connection point on the worker for the personal fall arrest system. They are used as a part of a complete system to protect the worker in the event of a fall and to limit the extent of potential injury.
Connectors are devices used to connect the worker’s full body harness to the anchorage system. Connectors include rope grabs and vertical lifelines, self retracting lifelines, and lanyards.
GME Supply offers roofer safety kits containing everything you need to be protected on a roof. Each kit contains an anchorage device, body support and connecting component.
