OSHA mandates that the fall arrest forces on a worker not exceed 1,800 lbs. when wearing a full-body harness.
Gemtor, Inc. recommends that an energy/shock absorber be used whenever the possibility of a free fall exists to assure that forces are below the OSHA limits.
Energy absorbers can increase fall arrest distance by up to 42”. Make sure the available fall space permits the use of an energy absorber.
