About This Item


Full Description

The Fall Protection Code is a set of standards that covers program management; system design; training; qualification and testing; equipment, component and system specifications for the processes used to protect workers at height in a managed fall protection program. This standard identifies those standards and establishes their role in the Code and their interdependence.

The Fall Protection Code encompasses standards for personal fall protection systems that incorporate a full body harness, intended to protect the user against falls from a height either by preventing or arresting free falls. In general, systems that prevent a free fall are preferable to systems that arrest a free fall. The types of systems that shall be addressed by this Fall Protection Code include:

a) Fall restraint systems
b) Work positioning systems
c) Rope access systems
d) Fall arrest systems
e) Rescue systems

This standard specifies minimum requirements for the processes, systems, sub-systems and components used in a managed fall protection program that meets all of the requirements of the ANSI/ASSE Z359 Fall Protection Code.
