How do self retracting lifelines work?
Self retracting lifelines (SRL) are designed using webbing, wire rope, or a cable that automatically retracts into a housing unit, never allowing for any slack in the line. SRLs are longer than lanyards and permit a larger working radius, even when using a fixed anchor point—which is typically overhead.
What is the difference between a lanyard and a lifeline?
The lifeline automatically retracts into the unit housing (as opposed to a lanyard, which hangs freely), and falls are arrested by the engagement of an internal braking mechanism.

Do retractable lanyards need inspected?
OSHA regulations require users to inspect their SRL before every use, with any defective fall protection taken out of service.

When working from heights When would you use a self-retracting lifeline?
Self-retracting lifelines are used in situations where work at height is executed and where users work in fall arrest or fall restraint situations. When working in fall restraint, users cannot reach the area where they have the probability to fall.
What is the difference between a fall limiter and self-retracting lifeline?
An SRL is larger in size and has a greater length than a personal fall limiter. The cables can reach up to 100 ft in length. An SRL is typically installed above the worker. A personal fall limiter is a subtype of an SRL.
