About This Course:
OSHA’s newly finalized Fall Protection rule draws heavily from the ANSI Z359 fall protection standard, the national voluntary consensus fall protection equipment standard for the general industry.

ANSI Z359 is often used as a benchmark standard in many fall protection programs and addresses a wide range of fall protection areas.
