Planning is extremely important, especially for lifelines planned to be installed on roof tops. The safest layout plan should be prepared by taking into account the work to be done on the roof. When making the lifeline plan, care should be taken to ensure that the steel rope does not touch the ground or any other foreign surface, that there is no factor that will prevent the smooth movement of the anthrax, and that the personnel can remain connected to the line from the moment they enter the work area. When planning at corner points, the pendulum effect that will occur during the fall should be taken into consideration. Wherever possible, the lifeline should be installed in an overhead position. It is important to get professional support in the lifeline project design process. XTR Safety offers free exploration and project design support.
