Classroom Training

ABCS is introducing their new 3D character named “Abel Wiseman” who is wearing a full-body harness and shock absorbing lanyard. He is using a cable wrap connected to an I-beam that serves as his anchorage.

Understanding fall clearance, arresting force and free fall distance is key to safely using a personal fall arrest system.

With the assistance of Abel Wiseman, you’ll see how easy it is to calculate your minimum clearance and free fall distance when setting up your fall arrest system.

This 3D animation provides a step-by-step method that explains in simple language how to figure out your clearance and free fall distance without the need for complicated formulas and acronyms.
