Shock Absorbing Lanyard for Leading Edge
What is a leading edge?
According to OSHA 1926.751, ''leading edge'' means the unprotected side and edge of a floor, roof, or formwork for a floor or other walking/working surface (such as a deck) which changes location as additional floor, roof, decking or formwork sections are placed, formed or constructed.
To visualize a leading-edge situation, imagine a worker installing steel decking on a new building. Now picture the worker's fall protection system is anchored at foot level behind him. As the worker moves out and away from the anchor point while installing the decking, the worker is exposed to a potential fall over the edge of the building. This can also be considered a leading edge. A typical leading edge will force the lanyard or lifeline to bend over the edge. Also, many leading edges present sharp edge hazards.
