Miller Fall Protection Fall Clearance Calculator

We’ve talked before on this blog about the “fall clearance” issue. Essentially fall clearance has to do with the distance you need to account for when taking a fall in order not to hit the ground. What this means is that if you are 6 foot tall, wearing a 6 foot lanyard, accounting for stretch and other factors, you will need to have 18 feet off fall clearance as illustrated below.

fall_clearance

Because factors vary (You might be using a self-retracting lifeline or an 8 foot lanyard, for example) each application should be looked at separately and the fall clearance calculated for each instance. Fortunately, Miller Fall Protection has a fall clearance calculator that you can use to determine your fall clearance. Just type in your variables and it’ll give you your fall clearance, illustrated as in the above image.

Great little tool to keep everyone safe!

New Video from Miller Fall Protection

Miller Fall Protection

New! Gravity Kills Defy It! Fall Protection Video

The NEW Miller “Gravity Kills Defy It!” video was produced to help employers learn the importance of: Developing a fall protection safety plan; Fall prevention and protection training; The ABCs of fall protection; Donning a harness in six easy steps; Calculating fall clearance; Proper inspection and maintenance procedures.

According to OSHA, fall hazards are the leading cause of injury at construction sites. More than 650 workers died in falls last year, and thousands were injured. Ensuring a safe workplace is a mandated employer responsibility. The most effective fall protection programs result when employers work closely with workers to identify fall hazards present at a particular site, and develop comprehensive safety-at-height plans and procedures.

You can view a short 3 minute promotional clip or the full 26 minute video. You can also download a fullscreen MP4 video (149.7 MB) for showing at your next safety meeting.

One of the best little guides for fall protection

Did some training this morning with the Miller Fall Protection rep. Part of what he handed out was a small pamphlet entitled “Smart Policy MillerGuide” which, as it turns out is a great little piece of litterature.

This 45 page publication is a fairly comprehensive guide to all things fall related including:

  • General Safety at Height Considerations
  • Developing a Safety at Height Program
  • Fall Prevention and Protection Training
  • A Personal Fall Arrest System
  • Inspection and Maintenance of a Personal Fall Arrest System
  • Glossary of Terms
  • Safety at Height Solutions

One of the things that makes this resource so valuable are the images, especially the ones that show what to look for when inspecting your fall protection gear. Rather than simply tell you what to look for they show you what faulty equipment looks like.
It also includes step-by-step photo guides for most fall protection procedures.

You can download a digital copy at: https://www.millerfallprotection.com/pdfs/Smart%20Policy%20MillerGuide.pdf

For a hard copy, email me at robv@nationalsafetyinc.com with your contact information and I’ll throw one in the mail for you.
