Installing a Fall Protection System
Rocky Schnaars demonstrates how to properly install a fall protection system on a residential roof.
Hi. I’m Rocky Schnaars and today we’re going to install a fall protection system. It’s made by MSA; it’s designed for one person. It’s a lovely, lovely tool and it starts with this bracket, which is attached to the peak of the roof. It can be attached one of two ways; via lag bolts with an impact driver or you can go ahead and put it in with 16 penny nails. It is crucial that you fill all of the holes for the required fastener. The reason why you have to have so many fasteners into the bracket is because the loading characteristics of someone falling are about 5,000 pounds. You have to have it installed correctly. Guys, it’s important when the ridge bracket gets positioned it has to be 6 feet away from the edge of the roof. The reason for that is because if the bracket is close and you happen to slide off the edge, you can fall and hit something as you swing on the side of the building. So, again, 6 feet from this edge over here, that’s where you’re going to go ahead and affix the bracket. We start by putting this on the top, making certain that it’s over a truss because you’re going to fasten it to the truss, not the skin. You’re going to be really tempted to shoot these in with a nail gun – don’t do it! You have to put it in, just hammer it in. If you start thinking about it, if you put a nail gun in there and it misses the hole, you’re going to blow a 16 penny nail out and hit somebody – don’t do it! The next step is to clip the rope onto the bracket. We use a very, very heavy duty double locking karabiner. It clicks on and you’re attached to the roof. This clutch assembly (which again, we put on downstairs) it has to be installed with the up arrow pointed at the bracket. The reason for this is obviously if it’s pointed down and you start to fall, it won’t grab. To move around, you simply grab this clutch assembly and open it up. It’s a spring loaded clutch assembly. So again, you get up and down, move the clutch, you can walk down, as soon as you let go of the clutch you’re safely affixed to the roof.
