Fall Protection Systems Criteria and Practices
“Employers shall provide and install all fall protection systems …”
The U.S. Department of Labor Safety and Health Regulations show how important fall arrest systems are—to your company and to you personally. But selecting the the right tool for the right job isn't always easy. There are different safety systems designed to protect you and your co-workers in different circumstances.
Let Us Help You Survive.
One of the most important parts of a tower safety plan is the ability to rescue a climber quickly to prevent the associated trauma with being suspended in a harness. TESSCO has the products that you need to make this possible along with a complete offering of fall protection products. The goal of every climber is to go home at the end of the day.

The TESSCO Rescue Kit Configurator makes compliance easy. Kit components also comply with new ANSI/ASSE Z359.4-2007 safety requirements for assisted-rescue and self-rescue systems and are portable enough to transport from site to site.
The tower climbers' mantra to "tie or die" is a grim reminder that working on high communications equipment is the most dangerous job in America* (PDF). Meet OSHA regulations and protect yourself with approved safety equipment while in the air.
