Four (and a Half) New ANSI Fall Protection Standards: What You Need to Know Before Buying Equipment

To keep up with the evolving technologies and related equipment in the fall protection industry, the ANSI/ASSP Z359 standards—or Fall Protection Code—are continuously advancing to provide organizations with best practices. During this webinar, attendees will learn how recent changes to four Z359 standards and the introduction of the new Z459.1 standard on rope access systems impact an organization's fall protection program.

The presenters—the Chair and Vice Chair of the ANSI/ASSP Z359 Committee—will provide an overview of the standards, key changes in the updated documents, and recommended ways to implement this new information. Safety professionals can use this overview to determine the best strategy for applying the new information to reduce risk for workers at heights.
