3M has unveiled a new backpack-style rescue device for personal fall protection.

The Latchways Personal Rescue Device (PRD) with 3M's Elavation Harness provides unassisted, gentle self-rescue, according to 3M.

Self-controlled Rescue

The lightweight, PRD "backpack" is activated by pulling a parachute-type cord. In the event of a fall, the Elavation Harness suspends the user, while the PRD allows for a steady descent to the ground.

3M's new Latchways Personal Rescue Device gives users an unassisted self-rescue and comes in three sizes.

When activated, the PRD can extend up to 65 feet and is controlled through a braking mechanism. If the wearer is unable to initiate a self-rescue, the device can also be activated by another person via a built-in secondary release mechanism.

"In a world of complex rescue solutions, simplified options are essential to helping ensure safety in the workplace," said Mike Cimino, product marketing, 3M Personal Safety Division.

"Unlike all other rescue devices, no specialist training is required with the Latchways PRD, as the device is part of a standard harness and activation is simple," Cimino said.

The rescue device is available in three sizes and can also be ordered with a Latchways Rescue Pole.

Headquartered in St. Paul, MN, 3M has operations in more than 70 countries. The company offers a range of personal protective equipment solutions such as respiratory protection, hearing protection, fall protection, and protective clothing and eyewear.
