Calculating Your Required Fall Clearance Distance
(Measured from a Rigid Anchor Point):
Do you struggle in figuring how to calculate your required fall clearance distance? We provide a fall clearance calculator to help calculate your fall clearance distance. Free fall is the distance you fall before your fall arrest system begins to slow you down. Properly designed fall arrest systems should protect workers from contact with any lower level or obstruction, typically with no more than a 2m free fall. This is why the proper calculation of fall clearance distance from your anchor point is so important. Refer to the free fall calculator for calculating fall clearance.
