As the premier fall protection consulting engineering firm in the United States, DH Glabe & Associates provides comprehensive fall protection designs that can be customized to fit your specific project needs. Whether it is through the integration of off-the-shelf fall protection equipment with custom components, or simply designing anchorage points inside an industrial plant for a horizontal lifeline; our engineers can provide a solution for any unique application. We have comprehensive knowledge of all applicable standards including but not limited to OSHA, Cal-OSHA, ANSI Z359, IWCA, ASME, and ASSE to help us provide practical and safe solutions for all Personal Fall Arrest Systems (PFAS).

Engineered fall protection designs developed by DH Glabe & Associates provide you with many advantages on your jobsite. According to OSHA, anchorages must be capable of supporting at least 5,000 pounds per employee OR shall be designed as part of a complete PFAS which maintains a safety factor of at least two.

As a Qualified Designer and Professional Engineering Firm, DH Glabe & Associates utilizes our structural analysis capability to provide fall protection designs which can reduce the load an anchor must support from 5,000 pounds to a more manageable load, sometimes as little as 1,800 pounds. This reduction in capacity will provide your employees more versatility in the field, while saving you time and money on the installation of costly fall protection equipment. Having a fall protection system designed by our expert team of fall protection designers will ensure not only a safe and compliant jobsite, but one that is also cost effective for you as well. Contact us today to see how our team of fall protection experts can help you with your next project.
