Know Your Lanyard


Energy Absorbing Lanyard
These lanyards utilize a packed deceleration device (shock pack) designed for controlled tearing action to reduce fall arrest forces.

DeCoil™ Stretch

Energy Absorbing Lanyard with Elastic Stretch
These lanyards utlize an energy absorbing device (shock pack) and have elastic webbing that contracts from 6' to 4' reducing the hazards of tripping, dragging, or snagging.


Internal Energy Absorbing Lanyard
These lanyards feature a tubular, energy absorbing inner core that uses the entire length of the lanyard to absorb the energy of a fall and reduce the arresting forces on a user.


Non-Energy Absorbing Lanyard
These lanyards do not have any shock absorbing features and are only for work positioning or restraint applications.

Lanyard Attributes

The tie-back feature allows these lanyards to act as both a connecting means and anchorage connector when no other acceptable anchor is available.
Twinleg (100% Tie-Off)
Two lanyards connected together are meant for 100% tie-off, allowing the user to safely move from one location to another.
Adjustable in length to adapt to different working conditions.
Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
