Could a Safety lanyard monitoring system save lives? Ok so I tend to be one of those people that think's about solutions. I am going to throw this out in the community with no regards to patent rights by me or others. If I am shooting myself in the foot here then so be it. The industry needs solutions and this might be one. Imagine if you will, pulling a new lanyard out of a shipping carton you just received from your supplier. Your new 6’, double hook, shock absorbing lanyard has both the hooks attached to a small weather resistant yellow box, WITH, a small numbered key pad on one side and a thing that looks like a magnet attached to the other side. You open the instructions and begin to read. The instructions inform you that you have a special access code and you should remember this code. 8433633. The instructions go on to tell you the following. To use this Safety lanyard monitoring system, attach lanyard to your harness, attach box to tower with built in magnet, enter your access code and hit enter, remove your hooks from holsters of yellow box. You will hear a beeping sound, attach your safety lanyard monitoring system hook or hooks to the tower. The beeping should stop. You now have a safety system that will monitor when both hooks are removed from the tower steel. As long as you have one safety lanyard in you are 100% tied off. If you start to hear beeping you are not tied off to the tower steel. When you finish your work for the day and your feet are on the ground, remove your safety lanyard hooks from the tower, place them in the yellow box holsters and log out using your code. Well by now you probably understand the basic concept of the Idea. The box would have a transmitter/receiver built into it and the lanyard a small transmitter/receiver. When the two units are disconnected by removing both your lanyards from the tower steel, your lanyard attached to your back begins to beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, hay hook in. Bringing to your attention you are not 100% tied off. Features could be incorporated into the yellow box. Date, Time stamp in /time stamp out. Could track the number of incidences all downloadable by Wi-Fi by the employer or hum mm OSHA? Did I just say that? Hay could prove you were Tied off. Just thinking out loud here. Ascending and descending a tower on a Lad safe system would have to get worked out? Battery issues? Etc. So there you have it! “IDEA” SPILLED!
