Keep Your Fall Protection Program Up to Date with Newest ANSI/ASSP Standards
The landscape of the fall protection industry is continuously advancing and changing, and the ANSI/ASSP Z359 standards—or Fall Protection Code—are working to keep up with the evolving technologies and practices. Attendees will learn how recent and forthcoming changes to the standards may impact key aspects of their organization's fall protection program.
The presentation will explain how the standards interrelate and provide insight on recently and soon to-be released standards, including new updates related to full-body harnesses, self-retracting devices and rope access systems. With this information, safety professionals can determine the best strategy for applying the newly released standards to reduce risk for workers at heights.
UPDATE: Due to unforeseen technical issues, this event has been moved to June 10th. If this new date/time doesn't work with your schedule, an on-demand version of this event will be available after the live event for you to watch at your convenience.
