Mansafe System (Safety Line System)

Offering a personal measure of protection, specialist systems protect users in both Fall Arrest and Fall Restraint configurations.

Last Updated: 21st April 2022

Mansafe Systems

A Mansafe System is a horizontal Safety Line System designed to keep individuals safe when working at height. The word mansafe is often used within the industry to describe various forms of fall protection systems, with the most common system being the Safety Line system. A Mansafe System (Safety Line) will allow safe access for operatives undertaking maintenance on various different roof types.

A mansafe fall protection system can be designed as either a fall restraint or a fall arrest. The fall restraint option requires the system to be installed no less than 2m away from the fall hazard, resulting in the user being restrained from falling. The fall arrest option exposes the user to a possible fall but would arrest the user in the event of a fall occurring. The fall restraint option is always the preferred method of installation, however, this may not be suitable in all circumstances, due to roof space etc.

All types of fall arrest and fall restraint systems will need to be tested and inspected regularly to ensure the system is fit for purpose and contains no faults.


When is a Mansafe System required?

If you have a requirement for anyone to be working at height, you will need to ensure the correct measures are in place for operatives to work safely at height. You will need to ensure that the most suitable system has been installed, whether that’s Edge Protection, Mobile Anchors or a Mansafe System (Safety Lines).
