Advances In Fall Protection: Interpreting And Applying ANSI Z359

Webinar: ID# 1001798
About This Course:
ANSI Z359 is a national voluntary consensus fall protection equipment standard for general industry. According to many safety experts, it is the benchmark standard that has been used in many fall protection programs, including references by OSHA.

It is a family of standards that address a wide range of fall protection areas, including requirements for personal fall protection arrest systems, comprehensive managed fall protection programs, positioning and travel restraint systems, and assisted-rescue and travel restraint systems.

Since the chartering of the ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Committee in 1988 and the publication of the first consensus standard, Z359.1-safety requirements for personal fall arrest systems, subsystems, and components in 1992, there have been several revisions and expansions of the standard.

There are actually 19 subsections with ongoing development occurring in most of the subsections, one of the more recent being ANSI 359.11-safety requirements for full-body harnesses last year.
