JLG's new Fall Arrest product
JLG Industries is offering a new safety system that bolts onto existing JLG platforms in the field. This comes in the wake of the 2004 addition of its Fall Arrest Platform which has helped operators move more safely outside the platform of their aerial work equipment.

The new feature allows an occupant to exit the platform at height and step onto adjacent structures while being tied up to an approved lanyard anchor point on the platform. The Bolt-On Fall Arrest System consists of two large steel brackets securing a 6 ft. (1.8 m)  cable with a ring that can move from one end of the cable to the other. Attaching the lanyard to the ring improves manoeuvrability and allows the operator to perform tasks outside the platform.

"Machine operators can often save time by having access beyond the work platform," says Bill Dovey, senior product manager, booms, JLG Industries. "Our External Bolt-On Fall Arrest System gives operators the confidence to manoeuvre safely and securely outside the platform."

JLG says these systems are ideal for a variety of applications, including aircraft inspection, maintenance and service; roof installation or repair; chimney repair; bridge construction; petrochemical plant construction; inspection maintenance and repair; and steel erection as well as general construction and maintenance.

The External Bolt-On Fall Arrest System meets both ANSI A92.5 and CSA B354.4-02 standards and can be installed by a qualified service representative to most JLG boom lifts. The system is portable and can be moved from one platform to another, does not require a specially reinforced platform and does not de-rate platform capacity.
