OSHA Fall Protection Regulations & Standards
Our OSHA compliant Fall Protection, Fall Arrest, and Fall Restraint Systems, including our Fall Protection Training & Services, have been designed to provide ease of handling, installation and use without compromising safety.
Strict Conformance Warning - Active Fall Protection Systems
"!! CAUTION !! This is a fall protection system. The system must be used in strict conformance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. Do not use or operate this system unless you are properly trained."
If perimeter platforms cannot be used, active systems can be installed, requiring the workers to don harnesses and connect to an overhead system. Active fall protection system options consist of fixed-point anchors, horizontal lifelines and conventional beam and trolley systems each attached to the existing overhead structure.
It is crucial that the authorized person/user of this equipment read and understand these instructions. In addition, federal law requires employers to ensure that all users are trained in the proper installation, use, inspection, and maintenance of fall protection equipment. Fall protection training should be an integral part of a comprehensive safety program.
Proper use of fall arrest systems can save lives and reduce the potential of serious injuries from a fall. The user must be aware that forces experienced during the arrest of a fall or prolonged suspension may cause bodily injury. Consult a physician if there is any question about the user’s ability to use this product. Pregnant women and minor children must not use this product.
According to OSHA, all workers exposed to falls should be trained by a competent person to recognize fall hazards and to be familiar with available control methods and equipment.
