About This Course:
Having an effective fall protection program is vital to ongoing safety success.

ANSI Z359 is a national voluntary consensus fall protection equipment standard for general industry. According to many safety experts, it is benchmark standard that has used in many fall protection programs, including references by OSHA.

Currently, OSHA is considering revisions for the fall protection systems standard that is likely to draw heavily from the Z359 consensus standard. Therefore, it is critical that you have a good handle on Z359. The primary areas include requirements for:
  • personal fall protection arrest systems;
  • comprehensive managed fall protection program;
  • positioning and travel restraint systems; and
  • assisted-rescue and travel restraint system.
