Specific Incident Equipment
Class Frontal Fixed Rail Ladder (FRL) Fall Protection System
Although equipment can meet the requirements of and be stamped with appropriate national standards, this does not guarantee worker safety. The equipment, it's application and it's associated need to be assessed for adaquacy.
Employers who own or rent structures equipped with a Class FRL system must ensure that the system is capable of protecting a worker from ANY type of fall (including backward) before it is put into use. It is recommended that employers contact the manufacturers for guidance and assistance.
