The ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code – The Last 5 Years and More to Come
When it’s time to buy new fall protection equipment, the ANSI/ASSP Z359 standard—called the Fall Protection Code—is the most current and robust resource for information to ensure you purchase the right equipment to meet today’s standards. While ANSI is a voluntary consensus standard (not the law), it complements OSHA and provides much more specific guidance about the fall protection equipment being used in the market today.
This session provides an overview of The Fall Protection Code and explains how you can use the requirements it provides for performance, design, training, inspection, use, and maintenance to make the most of your investment in fall protection equipment. The presenter, who is the Chair of the Z359 committee, provides tips for practical application of the standards for an effective fall protection program, as well as a preview of what’s coming next for the standards.
