The External Bolt-On Fall Arrest System from JLG Industries, Inc. can be installed to a 36 x 72 in. or 36 x 96 in. platform mounted to a JLG boom lift. This feature allows an occupant to exit the platform at height and step onto adjacent structures while being tied off to an approved lanyard anchor point on the platform. The system is portable and can be moved from one platform to another, does not require a specially reinforced platform and does not de-rate platform capacity. It consists of two large steel brackets securing a 6-ft.cable with a ring that can move from one end of the cable to the other.
