When it comes to the safety of workers in the civil construction and earthworks industry, there’s no room for compromise. That’s why 3M is proud to offer a comprehensive range of fall protection equipment designed to keep workers secure at all times.

With cutting-edge technology and a commitment to safety, 3M provides reliable solutions that ensure peace of mind on any job site.

3M understands the importance of solid anchorage points in any fall protection system. Their anchorage connectors serve as secure points of attachment for lifelines, lanyards, and deceleration devices.

With a diverse range of anchors available, including beam anchors, hooks, tie-off adaptors, D-ring plates, tripods, and davits, 3M ensures that each industry and job has the right anchorage solution. These connectors are designed to withstand the forces generated during a fall and meet industry standards by supporting at least 16KN, providing workers with dependable protection.

Worker comfort and ease of use are key considerations in fall protection equipment. 3M offers full body harnesses that distribute fall arrest forces across the shoulders, upper thighs, chest, and pelvis. These harnesses feature dorsal D-rings for attachment to connectors like lanyards and additional D-rings for worker positioning, travel restraint, retrieval, or ladder climbing.

In particular, the 3M™ DBI-SALA® Delta™ Live Line Harness is a game-changer. With its exceptional features and unmatched build quality, this harness sets a new standard for safety and comfort in the industry.

Equipped with coated, corrosion-resistant hardware and water-repellent, abrasion-resistant webbing, it is designed to withstand the harshest conditions. These solutions are also designed to prioritise comfort, enabling workers in civil construction and earthworks to perform their tasks with confidence and productivity.

Connectors are pivotal in securely attaching a worker’s harness to the anchorage connector. When it comes to fall protection, 3M offers a diverse range of connectors to cater to various fall protection needs. Their personal fall arrest connectors, including shock-absorbing lanyards and self-retracting lifelines, are equipped with energy-absorbing elements that effectively minimise the force transmitted to the user’s body during a fall.

Additionally, 3M provides connectors designed specifically for positioning and travel restriction, ensuring workers are kept out of fall hazard zones and preventing free falls from short distances.
