Preventing Falls from Heights

Horizontal lifeline systems (HLLSs), also called flexible continuous anchorage systems, are used to prevent falls from heights.

This tool is intended for the use of :
  • active fall protection system design engineers
  • OHS officers and HLLS users who wish to assess an already installed system

This tool is not a substitute for the opinion of a qualified engineer and does not constitute proof that an HLLS is safe. It must be used with caution.

This software tool can be used for the following calculations:

  • Tension in the cable at fall arrest
  • Deflection of the cable at fall arrest
Calculate HLLS
  • Clearance required in relation to the cable
