LES RaptorRescue Retrieval System
The LES RaptorRescue System will lower or raise (lowering is recommended) a fallen worker to a safe area for medical aid. If a fall happens, lower the Engagement Arm Lock into position, releasing the cable and lowering to the fallen worker. Once the cable has been properly attached you may begin to lower or raise the worker. One man can work the winch simply because of its 5 to 1 gear reduction.
NOTE* Westside Supply Inc recommends that a fallen worker is lowered to the ground whenever possible.
Is a Rescue Plan Necessary?
OSHA 1926.502(20) states that “The employer shall provide for ‘prompt’ rescue of employees in the event of a fall or shall assure that employees are able to rescue themselves.”
