Fall Calculations

Calculating fall clearance distance

Personal Fall Arrest System Anchorage Points

Calculating Fall Clearance Distance Using a Retractable Lifeline

  • First, add the maximum free fall distance (2 ft.) with a retractable lifeline to the maximum deceleration distance (3-1/2 ft.) to the average height of a worker (6 ft.).
  • Then, add a safety factor of 3 ft. to allow for the possibility of an improperly fit harness, a taller than average worker and/or a miscalculation of distance.
  • The total, 14-1/2 ft. is the suggested safe fall clearance distance for this example.
