Calculating Fall Clearance

Posted on Wednesday Jan 31, 2018 at 07:25PM in Safety Program


Free fall is the distance you fall before your fall arrest system begins to slow you down. Properly designed fall arrest systems should protect workers from contact with any lower level or obstruction, with no more than a six-foot free fall. This is why the proper calculation of fall clearance distance from your anchor point is so important.
