The Trauma Strap is an indispensable item for anyone working at height, and helps to mitigate the effects of suspension trauma (which can occur in as little as 15 minutes) in the event of a fall. By allowing the fallen worker to assume a standing position and relieve pressure on the lower extremities, the Trauma Strap allows better blood flow and reduces fatigue. Compatible with all Guardian full-body harnesses, the Trauma Strap is easy to adjust, and its low profile keeps it out of the way during work.
Our PRO™ positioning lanyards provide high quality compliance at an economical price and are trusted by workers. These lanyards are designed without shock absorbers, making them ideal for positioning or restraint applications. The web, rope and chain positioning lanyards are as tough as the guys who use them and feature abrasion resistant construction and high strength materials. In addition, PRO™ lanyards are lightweight and provide added comfort and safety. Various styles, lengths and hooks options are available to suit your specific jobsite needs.
Compliance in a Can™ is often imitated, but never matched. Protecta® pioneered the creation of a complete fall protection system available in a convenient container. The success of the original “can” spawned the creation of several variations with different anchorage devices. Each kit offers a complete set-up including an anchorage device, body support and connecting component for convenient compliance and safety on the job. This “ABC’s” approach to fall protection simplifies the buying decision and makes choosing the correct system simple, fast and safe. Our easy to use kits and anchorage devices provide the perfect solution and are legendary for their performance, value, quality and safety.
The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap was designed to help a worker overcome the potential negative health impacts of suspension trauma (otherwise known as Orthostatic Intolerance). This condition can occur when a person remains suspended at height (after a fall) for even short periods of time. Suspension in a harness may cause blood to pool in the veins of the legs which can result in unconsciousness; if not rescued promptly, serious injury or death may occur. The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap is designed to prevent suspension trauma while a worker is awaiting rescue. The Suspension Trauma Safety Strap allows the worker, who is suspended, to stand up in their harness and to relieve the pressure being applied to the arteries and veins around the top of the legs. The continuous loop design allows both sides of the harness to relieve the pressure being applied to the legs. The strap accommodates either having one foot or both feet in the loop at a time - it will relieve the pressure to both sides with just one foot in allowing for added movement of the legs. The strap allows for increased comfort, balance and improved circulation in the legs while suspended and waiting for rescue.
