Fall Protection

Personal fall arrest products and systems have advanced tremendously in the last 10 years. ANSI and OSHA regulations have much to do with clear and stringent requirements that have been placed on the manufacturers and users of these potential life saving products.

OSHA 1926.502(d)(21) states “Personal fall arrest systems shall be inspected prior to each use for wear, damage, and other deterioration, and defective components shall be removed from service.

General industry standard ANSI Z359 2007, section 5.5:“Fall protection and rescue equipment shall be inspected on a regular basis not to exceed one year (or more frequently if required by manufacturer’s instructions) by a competent person or competent rescuer, as appropriate, to verify that the equipment is safe for use. The inspection shall be documented.”

Construction standard ANSI A10 32-2004 section 6.3.2: “Formal inspections shall be made by either a competent person or qualified person on a least a semi-annual basis. Suggested examination periods are 3/1 to 3/31 and 9/1 to 9/30 for each employer.” (Manufacturers suggested)

Note that both parts of ANSI state that the worker must inspect the prior to every use and the formal inspections be documented. Manufacturers include instructions with all products and recommends that you follow the ANSI A10 guideline which is a semi-annual inspection. It’s important that the workers comply with the manufacturers care and maintenance stipulations

Over 222,000 people are injured each year in North America while using ladders. Under the provisions of OSHA 29 CFR 1926, Sub Part X employers must enable each employee to recognize hazards related to ladders.
