Fall protection: Detachable self-rescue device is a smarter, faster way to rescue

Fall protection: A safe and effective rescue plan always starts with self-rescue. With this in mind, 3M Fall Protection Business (formerly Capital Safety) launched the DBI-SALA® Self-Rescue, a detachable self-rescue device. The device easily connects to a worker’s current safety harness, providing a fast, effective method of escape from suspension, while minimizing risk for the wearer, coworkers and rescue personnel.

“Self-rescue is the safest approach in a rescue situation as it can be activated by the wearer immediately, and it keeps coworkers in the surrounding area out of danger,” said Chris Coyle, hard goods product manager at 3M Fall Protection. “With the DBI- SALA Self-Rescue device, we wanted to create a solution that was among the quickest and easiest to deploy in the field. It’s a smarter way to rescue.”

Self-Rescue features a patent-pending EZ-LinkTM D-ring to simplify connection, a secondary rescue ring for assisted rescue, and a sealed, padded package to protect the descent device from damage during use. In an effort to ensure reliable performance in the field, Self-Rescue has gone through rigorous testing. The sealed design allows the product to perform as expected after it has been soaked in water for two hours and frozen in temperatures of negative 40 degrees Celsius. With 50- or 100-foot versions available, the self-rescue device is among the most flexible and adaptable ever created.
