Safway develops new personal fall limiter
By Sarah Ann McCay12 September 2013
Access and scaffolding company Safway, working with safety equipment manufacturer Honeywell, has introduced a new, lightweight version of the Miller TurboLite Personal Fall Limiter (PFL).
“We turned to Honeywell/Miller to help us develop and engineer fall protection equipment designed specifically for our industry,” said Safway Group president and CEO Bill Hayes. “This is part of our 100% fall protection policy requiring all of our employees who are working at heights to wear protective gear. We want to provide our employees with the best possible fall protection equipment. The Miller TurboLite PFL, combined with the Miller Aircore harness and other Honeywell fall protection products, gives our workers more flexibility, while keeping them secure and properly tied off. ”
Specifically designed for use in the scaffold and access service industries, the new Miller TurboLite PFL is available in a six-foot (1.8 m) and a new nine-foot (2.7 m) model.
In addition, a self-retracting lifeline halts any fast and unexpected movements, stopping any falls within inches instead of feet. The Miller TurboLite PFL is also equipped with a radio frequency indicator (RFI) feature so that users can track the safety equipment, and identify to whom and when the equipment was issued and when it was last inspected.
