Fall Restraint vs Fall Arrest

Restraint Technique

These systems allow a person access to conduct their duties but prevent them from reaching a point where a fall could occur.

Restraint systems are generally suitable if the person needs to work at the edge of a hazard. For example, where there is a need to maintain gutters along the edge of a roof, or if there are other potential fall hazards such as a fragile roof, roof lights or air vents.

Restraint systems are generally positioned more than 2 m from the hazard. This is because common practice is for the worker to be connected to the system by a fixed length 1.5 m lanyard.

Fall Arrest

A fall arrest system provides maximum freedom of movement for workers to conduct their duties. In doing so it allows them to reach the point where a fall could occur, such as the edge of a roof for gutter maintenance.

However, in the event of a fall, the fall will be arrested and so allow the person to either effect a self-rescue or be rescued.

Any fall, or part of a fall in excess of 600mm, either vertically or on a slope, on which it is not possible to walk without the assistance of a handrail or line.
