Honeywell today announced the rollout of the Honeywell Miller Turbolite™ Flash Personal Fall Limiter, an innovative, versatile, self-retracting lifeline (SRL) that helps protect at-height workers against hazards in electrical utility, arc flash, and hot work applications.
Nearly eight years ago, in its Z359.14 Safety Requirements for Self-Retracting Devices standard, ANSI divided self-retracting lifelines (SRLs) into two classes, Class A and Class B. Although it’s been close to a decade, there is still some misunderstanding as to what these classes mean.

Trucking can be a hazardous profession for drivers – and that’s before the driver has even set foot in the cab or put the vehicle in gear. For good reason -- fleets focus much of their attention on minimizing risks on the road, but there are also risks when a driver is on his or her feet as well, due to the risk of a fall.
After months of engineering and extensive testing, Malta Dynamics is pleased to announce its new Edgehog Leading Edge Self-Retracting Lifelines. The Edgehog line meets ANSI standard Z359.14-2014 for a worker capacity range of 130-310 lbs.
“A leading edge self-retracting lifeline can be critical,” Malta Dynamics President Holland said. “If a worker goes over an edge, as the self-retracting lifeline contacts the edge and comes over, there is a potential the cable could break if it's not specifically designed for leading edge use.”
