How Does A Tether Track Work?

A Gorbel Tether Track™ can accommodate a few different workers, weighing up to 310 pounds each. Even if your worker is loaded with heavy tools, they’ll be well under the safety compliance weight.

Whatever the construction you need best, the Gorbel tether track can help cover it.

OSHA Compliance for the Tether Track

OSHA, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration requires fall protection for anything over 6 feet. A Gorbel tether track meets the OSHA 1926 Subpart M Construction standard. It also satisfies the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection code. In addition to these safety standards, it also increases the subjective feeling of worker safety. To be considered something that is a total fall protection system, it must include some kind of anchor, something to harness your body, and something to absorb the shock of the fall. A tether track features all of these things. Falls are a common cause of workplace injuries. A tether track offers excellent active protection for falls, helping to remain OSHA compliant and to protect workers from injuries.
