PSC Tagline Retriever Tool (TRT)

A Saf e r Way to Retrieve Taglines

Injuries from handling, lifting or carrying loads is one the most common
type of accident in the offshore industry. The successful management of
this kind of risk can be achieved through the introduction of Hands-Free
and Hands-Off Safety Tools.
Sometimes in the course of their duties riggers cannot avoid getting
under a suspended load, or at least in the load shadow (the area under a
load into which that load could fall and cause fatality), and it’s usually
because they need to catch onto the tagline to guide the lifted load into
landing position.
The PSC Tagline Retriever Tool allows a worker to be at a much safer distance from the load when suspended
and allows the worker to freely grasp and handle the tagline while remaining outside the line of fire of falling
objects and the suspended load.

PSC TRT is designed to help facilitate ‘hands-free’ lifting and improve safety In handling taglines . The tool is
a modified aluminium telescopic boat hook with a rubber buffer at the other end. The hook end is used at full
extension (approximately 2.1m / 7ft) to retrieve taglines hanging vertically without a load handler having to go
too close to a suspended load.
The rubber buffer is used to push against suspended
loads to guide them, especially when landing loads in
tight or congested spaces. Once again, this allows the
