Horizontal and Vertical Safety Lines

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

Last Updated: 10/09/2021

What is a Safety Line?

A Safety Line (sometimes referred to as a mansafe system, a lifeline system, a lanyard, a harness line, a fall arrest system, a fall restraint system) can be a horizontal or vertical line that work at height personnel can attach themselves to, to protect or arrest them from falling. The systems are anchored to a structure, and then an operative is connected to act as a fall arrest/protection system.

Heightsafe’s Roof Lifelines are a great solution for visually sensitive buildings that require a Fall Protection system – providing a personal measure of protection where it is not feasible to supply collective edge protection for personnel.

These market leading roof safety line systems are designed to be safe and easy to use, operating horizontally, vertically, around corners, and on up-and-down inclines, offering full protection that is compliant with current legislation.

Whilst complementing individual building design, Heightsafe’s flexible systems are also sensitive to planning requirements for new buildings. Each safety line system is designed to meet specific site requirements, whether directly fixed to a solid structure, or built-up for composite metal decks, single ply membranes, concrete, or lead lined roofs.

When Working at Height, it is imperative that all personnel are appropriately trained to undertake the work at hand.

Who is Responsible for Providing Fall Protection?

Fall Protection is not a single person’s responsibility, more of a collective effort between building owners, employers, facilities managers, contractors, and employees working at height. Each party has their own responsibilities to ensure operatives working at height are provided with the most suitable system to keep them safe, whether that is edge protection, mobile anchors or safety lines.

What are the Legislation and Standards for Safety Lines?

It is stated in legislation that any fall arrest or fall prevention systems used for Work at Height are tested for integrity and compliance at least once every 12 months.

  • BS EN 795:2012
  • PD CEN/ TS 16415:2013
  • BS 7883:2019
