dsl2 Spanset

SpanSet’s DSL 2 takes all the advantages of the original DSL whilst adding a new dimension to reduce safe clearance heights even further.

The DSL achieves a 50% improvement on the requirements set out in EN355 and opens up the potential to effectively protect workers in previously difficult locations.

When it comes to Fall Arrest Lanyards most users currently choose a full two metre version for maximum freedom of movement, but in doing so have to accept they will allow potentially longer falls even when the full freedom of movement is not required.

Having a lanyard the right length for each task would keep the potential fall to the minimum, but in the past was not possible. The choice was either freedom of movement or security – not much of a choice really.

When launching the original DSL in 2012 SpanSet made it possible to have what users really wanted -

a full length lanyard with the capability to be anchored at its full extent below the worker if required, but retractable to remove excess length when not needed, providing users with a far higher level of security especially when working at low levels or above hazards such as machinery or structural elements.

The DSL 2 retractable lanyards go further, extending and retracting in use as required, but additionally during a fall they continue to retract resulting in significantly reduced falls that are consequently quicker to arrest.

e-a-rFit dual-ear ValidatioN systeM 3M

3M’s award-winning E-A-Rfit Dual-Ear Validation System has made significant leaps in the field- testing of hearing protection since its launch last year.

The innovation, from the science-based technology company, gives employers complete confidence that their workers are receiving the very best protection from harmful noise.

Understanding that every employee, job and ear is different, the solution has been designed to individually assess the Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) of each worker to help employers reach compliance and have assurance that the hearing protection equipment (HPE) is doing its job.

As HPE is so individual to the user, how they insert it can make a massive difference to the level of protection being offered and it is often the case that workers are not as protected as they believe they are – which potentially exposes them to the risk of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).

The 3M system works by measuring the effectiveness of earplugs and earmuffs from inside the employee’s ear, to help identify which HPE suits them best.

Unlike any other solutions on the market, it is able to test both ears at the same time to provide accurate, quantitative results. As both ears are simultaneously tested, it also gives the employer more time to educate employees on the importance of fit and compliance.

The product uses different frequencies to test both ears for noise reduction from hearing protection. Results are measured directly and objectively, meaning there is no need for employees to listen or respond to test signals.
