Fall protection System (FPS)

Solution

The Fall Protection System (FPS) prevents falls when working in hazardous areas, but it is also responsible for stopping the machine’s operation after the fall of the worker, to avoid even greater risks.

Descripción

This is a retractable safety device which, is anchored to a fixed element and connected to the worker with a safety harness.

When a fall occurs, the harness tenses up and the Fall Protection Device detects this tension.

This device is also responsible for sending the stop signal to the machinery in the plant, causing a quick halt in the functioning of the machine.


The device must be connected to the fixed mooring point, by means of the bearing swivel and the connector. Naturally, the fixed clamping point must be located above the user, in order for the force of gravity of the fall itself to cause the desired effect of generating the sudden tension in the harness. In addition, the connection must have a minimum static resistance of 12kN.

The shape and structure of the fixed clamping point should be sufficient to prevent the device’s automatic disconnection and slippage. The use of fixed mooring points marked and certified is recommended, according to the European standard EN795.
