Gemtor Harnesses

Gemtor full-body harnesses distribute the forces generated during a fall over at least the thighs, pelvis, chest, and shoulders. The standard sliding back D-ring helps to suspend a fallen worker in an upright position after the fall.

Cable & Rope Grabs

Small, lightweight rope-grabbing devices ride a vertical lifeline and automatically lock in place if a fall occurs.
The selection of your lanyard is as important as the proper selection of your body belt or full-body harness. Lanyards should be kept as short as possible to reduce the possibility of serious injury. OSHA mandates that free fall distances not exceed 6'.
Gemtor, Inc. recommends that an energy/shock absorber be used whenever the possibility of a free fall exists to assure that forces are below the OSHA limits.
Web lanyards are not appropriate for fall arrest unless used as part of a .fall arrest system incorporating an energy absorbing component.
Gemtor self-retracting lifelines and lanyards automatically extend and retract permitting a worker freedom of movement while preventing slack line and providing continuous protection against falls.
Designed for installation on fixed, permanent ladders of virtually any height, Gemtor ladder climber’s safety systems feature a safety sleeve that automatically follows the ascending and descending movements of a worker along a fixed ladder. If a slip or fall occurs, a locking mechanism engages, limiting the fall to a few inches and reducing the possibility of serious injury. 
Gemtor complete non-entry confined space retrieval systems come complete with everything you need to enter a vertical confined space with an acceptable means of access, except a full-body harness which should be selected based on application needs and user preferences.
Gemtor Horizontal Lifeline Systems are engineered to provide a temporary OSHA-compliant anchorage point when no overhead anchorage exists or when a worker needs the ability to move across a horizontal surface while tied off.
Gemtor anchor slings provide an OSHA-compliant anchor point when attached to a structural support capable of supporting at least 5,000 lbs. The anchor slings are made of 1 3/4" wide nylon webbing (polyester is also available) with a 3" wide wear pad to protect against abrasion.
2" wide x 1" thick x 15" long oval shaped hardwood rungs. Side rails may be ordered in 5/8" diameter nylon, polyester, poly-blend, or HSP rope. Side rails pass through and are secured to rungs using steel drive pins. Rungs are spaced 12" apart. Ladders come standard with 5' tie-down lines.

Falls are the most common, and most preventable cause of serious work-related injuries and death. Whether you’re working on a platform or around holes in the floor, adequate fall protection protects you from taking a fateful mis-step that may alter your life forever. Although fall protection, safety, and rescue equipment is important, it can be overwhelming to choose the right gear for the job.
Finding, evaluating, and purchasing the full spectrum of fall protection gear can be expensive and exhausting. If your head starts to spin at the mention of a harness, rope, anchor, lanyards, and lifelines, we are here to help.

Fall Protection Equipment

Necessary fall protection equipment depends on the application. A roofer may need a different set of fall protection than a tower climber. OSHA has developed standards for fall protection that are required for all industries to adhere to:

“…fall protection be provided at elevations of four feet in general industry workplaces, five feet in shipyards, six feet in the construction industry and eight feet in longshoring operations. In addition, OSHA requires that fall protection be provided when working over dangerous equipment and machinery, regardless of the fall distance.”

Employers are also required to provide additional safety/rescue equipment where necessary including, “…safety harness and line, safety nets, stair railings and hand rails.” Protecting yourself and your employee is not a luxury, it is the law. The following is the recommendations from OSHA on the different types of fall safety equipment and their recommended usage.

Class 1 - Body belts (single or double D-ring) are designed to restrain a person in a hazardous work position and to reduce the possibility of falls. They should not be used when fall potential exists; positioning only.

Class 2 - Chest harnesses are used when there are only limited fall hazards (no vertical free fall hazard), or for retrieving persons such as removal of persons from a tank or a bin.

Class 3 - Full body harnesses are designed to arrest the most severe free falls.

Class 4 - Suspension belts are independent work supports used to suspend a worker, such as boatswain's chairs or raising or lowering harnesses.

Rope Lanyard - Offers some elastic properties for all arrest; used for restraint purpose.

Web Lanyard - Ideal for restraint purposes where fall hazards are less than 2 feet.

Cable Positioning Lanyards - Designed for corrosive or excess heat environments and must be used in conjunction with shock absorbing devices.

Shock Absorbers - When used, the fall arresting force will be greatly reduced if a fall occurs.

Rope Grabs - A deceleration device which travels on a lifeline, used to safely ascend or descend ladders or sloped surfaces and automatically, by friction, engages the lifeline and locks so as to arrest the fall of an employee.

Retractable Lifeline Systems - Gives fall protection and mobility to the user when working at height or in areas where there is a danger of falling.

Safety Nets - Can be used to lesson the fall exposure when working where temporary floors and scaffolds are not used and the fall distance exceeds 25 feet.

Rail Systems - When climbing a ladder, rail systems can be used on any fixed ladder as well as curved surfaces as a reliable method of fall prevention.

Whether you need a simple harness or full gear for your entire crew, go beyond the bare minimum requirements and invest in quality gear that you can count on to be there when you fall. We have you covered from rope to restraints, our safety and rescue gear is the best in the industry.

All safety gear should be evaluated on a regular basis to ensure it is safe to use. For new or updated equipment, we make sure everything is easy to use, comfortable to wear, and gives you the adjustability, safety and reliability you need.
