HLLS: Tool for Designing a Fall Protection System

Intended as much for engineers designing new active fall protection systems as for prevention officers wanting to review the compliance of existing systems, this app can be used to design horizontal lifeline systems (HLSs), also called flexible continuous anchorage systems. Incorporating the nomograms developed when the technical guide was being updated and all HLS design parameters, the new tool offers a user-friendly way to calculate cable tension and deflection for fall arrest purposes, as well as the clearance required in relation to the cable.
