Session Title and Description: A Solution for Fall Prevention Using PFPE.
Boom lifts require the use of PFPE by all in the work platform (operator and occupants) – but there is no way to ensure that all personnel are safely attached to their PFPE. The Boeing company and Control Dynamics Inc. (CDI) team created a STANDARDIZED approach to ensuring that PFPE is worn. The newly-designed system is becoming the Boeing standard, complies with all worldwide requirements, is inexpensive, and ensures that lifts may not leave the ground unless everyone is attached to their PFPE. The interlock system also incorporates features to prohibit lift movement when any occupant has left the platform.
