PPE for fall protection

According to Workplace Guideline 2.1 (Protection against falls and falling objects, entering danger areas), fall protection is an "inevitably effective device that prevents a fall even without the conscious participation of employees". In the ranking of measures to protect against falls, fall protection is mentioned first. If fall protection or fall arrest equipment is not possible for structural reasons, personal protective equipment must be used. This includes, for example:

  • Height safety device
  • Holding devices
  • Fall arrest equipment
  • Seat belts and other fall protection equipment

Accessories such as carabiners, safety ropes and lanyards complete the range of DENIOS fall protection equipment. It is important that fall protection systems comply with all current standards and safety regulations.

Hedging: What to keep in mind

Fall protection equipment and PPE, especially safety harnesses, are associated with a number of standards and regulations.

EN 358 Retaining harness: For holding in the working position and for restraint in areas at risk of falling (e.g. when working on flat roofs). The holding eyes are usually located on the side in the area of the pelvic bone.

EN 361 Full body harness: For restraint in areas where there is a risk of falling and for arresting falls (e.g. when working on towers, masts, building overhangs). The catching eyes are located in the back between the shoulder blades (dorsal) or in the chest area (sternal).

EN 361 Full body harness for use in fall arrester systems: in conjunction with EN 353-1; for protection in areas where there is a risk of falling and for arresting falls in conjunction with guided type fall arresters on fixed guidance fall arresters (e.g. when working on towers, masts). The arrester eyes are usually located on the abdominal belt, centrally in front of the body.

EN 813 Seat harness: For holding in a seated working position when hanging freely. Seat harness eyelets are located as close as possible to the body's centre of gravity.

According to BGR 198, harnesses and webbing should be replaced every 6-8 years, lanyards and ropes every 4-6 years. Other important standards for fall protection are EN 341 (descenders), EN 354 (lanyards), EN 355 (energy absorbers), EN 353-2 (guided type fall arresters), EN 360 (retractable type fall arresters), EN 795 (anchor points) or EN 1496 (rescue lifting devices).
