Depending on your work environment needs, sometimes it’s more appropriate to wear one style of lifeline over another. When discussing dual vs. single leg lanyards it is important to note that in these situations, the user will be wearing a personal lifeline.
A lanyard is part of the personal fall arrest system (PFAS) and is a type of connector. Personal fall arrest systems are designed to safely stop a fall before a worker can reach the surface below. Lanyard lifelines for safety fall protection work with three components: an anchor to attach to, and a body harness with connector that attaches the worker to the harness.
Single lanyards or single self-retracting lifelines are usually worn when the worker is operating around the same general area within the work environment. The single lanyard remains attached to one anchor for a period of time and provides safety fall protection for the user.
At Malta Dynamics we have a one-of-a-kind benefit. We have large crews of workers in the field who use our safety equipment every day. We actually send all of our products to the men and women who must wear them before we put them on the market. We gather their feedback and optimize our gear to make sure everything is as user-friendly, durable, and comfortable as possible. If the equipment doesn’t suit our guys, we know it won’t be suitable for you. We listen to the opinions that matter to ensure that our products are field tested, and field approved.
