Offering A Lifeline

Falls continue to be a leading cause of preventable injury and death in the workplace. MSA Safety is now offering a first-of-its-kind temporary horizontal lifeline.

The American company says it can help save time on the jobsite as the system’s integrated locking and tensioning mechanism eliminates the need for nuts, bolts and wrenches, a key feature that makes the system significantly easier and faster to install because there is no need for tools.


 “Our new temporary horizontal lifeline was designed to address how long it took workers to install a traditional lifeline system by making this easier to use but without sacrificing the level of safety for workers at height.”

“This new system is lighter and easier to manoeuvre and can be easily set up by one person,” continues Lopez.

The new device also incorporates clear visual indicators to show when the system is properly installed. Designed to be adaptable to an ever-changing jobsite, the flexible, lightweight cable makes installation easier, plus MSA’s patented bypass shuttles allow two users to maintain 100 per cent tie-off while passing one another on the same line.

It is available in 60 and 100 foot lengths.
