10 Reasons To Buy B-Safe Self-Retracting Lanyards

Here’s why they’re better than your standard fall arrest lanyard.

A retractable lanyard has a restoring spring that keeps the wire rope or webbing taut, which allows it to be activated immediately in case of a fall. 
You can use the B-Safe retractable lanyard when working on high buildings, bridges, roofs and other workplaces where there are fall hazards.  

You might consider choosing it over a standard shock-absorbing lanyard for the following reasons: 

  1. Weighing only 1.2 kg, it’s very lightweight and compact. 
  2. It gives you freedom of movement that is not possible with a longer shock absorber. Once it’s tied to an anchor point, you can move around easily to accomplish your task. 
  3. The energy absorber is contained within the compact unit, so the risk of trips and falls caused by the lanyard dragging next to the worker are minimised. 
  4. With a shorter “activation distance”, it reduces the risk of you hitting the ground or any obstructions at a lower level in the case of a fall. 
  5. With a maximum length of 2.5 metres, it gives extended reach and versatility when working at heights. 
  6. It’s manufactured in Australia. 
  7. It’s tested to AS/NZS 1891.3 standards. 
  8. It’s a cost-effective and versatile anchoring system. 
  9. It has a built-in webbing guide, encased within the tough impact-resistant cover, that prevents twisting. 
  10. It comes complete with two twist lock karabiners, making it safer compared to screw-type karabiners. 

Important: The safe working load limit of the B-Safe Self-Retracting Lanyard is one person up to 100 kgs, and it must be connected to a full body harness and a reliable anchor point rated to at least 15 kN.
