Overhead workers need to be able to rely upon rigorously tested, properly functioning fall protection equipment to keep them safe in potentially hazardous working environments. Fall protection testing from Element can help manufacturers ensure that their products are safe, compliant, and fit for purpose. That means peace of mind for workers and their employers.
Our fall protection testing and certification services assess the performance of a range of fall protection equipment like harnesses, energy-absorbing lanyards, and anchors. The goal is to ensure that if a worker were to fall, the equipment would successfully stop their fall without causing serious injury. Our laboratories provide expert testing to help manufacturers confirm that their products are compliant with ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Codes.
