Fall Clearance Calculations & Fall Factors
Factors needed for fall clearance calculations:
Length of lanyard
Fully activated energy absorber
Body height from feet to harness attachment
Additional safety clearance
If in doubt: Fall limiters reduce fall clearance < 3m
A fall limiter or self-retracting lifeline will stop a fall in centimeters and is therefore the ideal solution for low-level work where a shock-absorbing lanyard is unable to stop the worker from hitting an obstacle below.
