The NEWTON MEWP Kit provides a ready-to-use ANSI compliant fall protection solution for workers using a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), such as a boom lift, scissor lift, or bucket truck.
It contains a NEWTON fall arrest harness (size 1 or 2), a pre-assembled ABSORBICA-I 150 fall arrest lanyard with two Bm’D connectors and two CAPTIV positioning bars, and a red BUCKET 15 bag.
Installation is quick and easy; simply attach the carabiner on the shock-absorber end to the fall arrest attachment point on the NEWTON harness, and the carabiner on the other end to the approved fall arrest anchor point in the MEWP.
The NEWTON is a lightweight, ergonomic fall arrest harness that is easy to don, thanks to its color-
coded straps. It features two dorsal attachment points and one sternal attachment point, and meets the
ANSI Z359.11 standard and OSHA regulations.
ABSORBICA-I 150 (Assembled)
The ABSORBICA-I 150 lanyard comes pre-assembled with two Bm’D ANSI Z359.12 compliant
connectors and two CAPTIV positioning bars, allowing it to meet the ANSI Z359.13 standard with no
manual assembly required. The lanyard features an elasticized arm and an integrated compact energy
absorber, which provides energy absorption in case of a fall and limits the arresting force on the worker,
in accordance with the ANSI standard.
Storing and transporting the kit is made easy, thanks to the BUCKET 15 bag. Made with high-strength
TPU tarp material, the BUCKET 15 is resistant to UV exposure, water, oil, grease, and high and low
temperatures. It also features an external zippered pocket for personal items and a marking area on the
outside for quick identification.
