Stay safe on a roof with 3M’s self-rescue device

3M detachable rescue harnessPersonal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required on the job to help keep workers safe, healthy, and productive, and 3M’s Personal Safety Division makes some of the best stuff out there. The company is showcasing its full PPE equipment product lineup at the 2016 National Safety Council Expo this week in booth #1404.

One device that might interest you or your solar installation staff in particular is the 3M DBI-SALA Self-Rescue Device.

When a worker is suspended after a fall from height, every second matters. To minimize risk to the suspended worker, their coworkers and emergency response personnel, at-height workers need a rescue plan that doesn’t leave them hanging.

The Self-Rescue Device is a flexible device that attaches to a current safety harness and allows workers to lower themselves to safety in the event of a fall from height.
