Honeywell has launched the Hybrid Energy-Absorbing Lanyard. The lanyard is the first-of-its-kind fall protection lanyard to meet CSA standards for both Class E4 — designed for lighter workers (100 lbs. to 254 lbs.) — and Class E6 for heavier workers (200 lbs. to 386 lbs.), says the manufacturer. The lanyard eliminates the guesswork involved in choosing the appropriate lanyard for workers of different weights, thereby reducing error and increasing safety for those working at height. Historically, to meet these different class requirements, safety managers have either stocked both classes of lanyards or relied on just one class for use by workers of all weights — a practice that is not CSA compliant and is potentially unsafe. The new Honeywell hybrid energy-absorbing lanyard is the simple, safe and fully compliant solution, says the manufacturer. It increases worker safety by eliminating the need to stock and choose between two types of lanyards. The new lanyard is available in a variety of styles, from both Miller and North fall protection brands.
