1.2.1 This standard addresses only personal fall arrest systems (PFAS) incorporating full body harnesses. Whenever the term “system” is used in the standard if refers to a personal fall arrest system.

3.1.2 When subjected to tests contained in 4.2, a personal fall arrest system in which a full body harness is used shall produce a maximum arrest force (MAF) of not more than 1,800 pounds (8.0kN) and shall bring the fall to a complete stop with a deceleration distance of not more than 42 inches (1,067 mm). In suspension, after the fall is arrested, the angle at rest which the vertical centerline of the test torso makes with the vertical shall not exceed 30 degrees.

3.2.1.4 Snap Hooks and carabiners shall be self closing and self locking and shall be capable of being opened only by at least two consecutive deliberate actions.

3.2.2.4 The harness shall provide support for the body across the lower chest, over the shoulders and around the thighs when a tensile load is applied to the fall arrest attachment elements. The harness, when properly fitted and used, shall prevent fall-out. The fall arrest attachment shall be located at the back (dorsal) position.

3.2.4.7 When energy absorbers are dynamically tested in accordance with 4.3.5.2, the maximum arrest force shall not exceed 900 lbs. (4 kN).

3.2.8.7 Static Strength- When tested in accordance with 4.3.7.3, the SRL shall withstand a tensile load of 3,000 pounds (13.3 kN) statically applied directly to the point of SRL line connection to the SRL drum.

3.2.8.9. Dynamic Performance- When tested in accordance with 4.3.7.1, the SRL shall lock and remain locked until released. The arrest distance shall not exceed 54 inches (1,372 mm). Maximum arrest force shall not exceed 1,800 pounds (8kN).

5.1.2 The legibility and attachment of required markings shall endure for the life of the component, subsystem, or system being marked.

5.3.1 Instructions shall be provided to the user, printed in English, and affixed to the equipment at the time of shipment from the manufacturer.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), founded in 1918, coordinates the development of voluntary safety standards in the fall protection industry. Representing more than 3.5 million professionals ANSI is comprised of government agencies, organizations, academic and international bodies, and individuals. ANSI Fall Protection regulations are not law, but do provide guidelines that are frequently so practical and essential that they are adopted by OSHA and enforced legally.

ANSI Fall Protection consensus standard was originally published in 1992, and was aimed at providing safety requirements for personal fall arrest systems, subsystems and components. One of the most important issues they have brought to the forefront is the elimination of hazards in the fall protection products themselves. And each time ANSI undergoes a revision, they hold the manufacturers of fall protection products to a higher standard. For example, a connector gate face that was previously compliant at 220 lbs. now is held to 3,600 lbs. This ensures employers and employees that they not only have the highest quality products, but, as a result, the safest workplaces.

ANSI Fall Protection also provides standards for workplace training and appropriate methods for developing a fall protection plan. No other country has such a detailed and comprehensive standard that is specific to fall protection.

Our ANSI 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.

Regulation Summary: Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems); OSHA’s Final Rule – December, 2016

General Industry 29 CFR 1910: On November 17, 2016, OSHA published its final rule on Walking and Working Surfaces. The 513 page copy from the Federal Register can be downloaded at:

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2016/11/18/2016-24557/walking-workingsurfaces-and-personal-protective-equipment-fall-protection-systems

Who and what does the final rule cover?

The final rule applies to all general industry workplaces and covers all walking-working surfaces, which include horizontal and vertical surfaces such as floors, stairs, roofs, ladders, ramps, scaffolds and elevated walkways. The final rule also has provisions affecting fall protection systems.

The final rule covers a wide variety of general industry entities, including building management services, utilities, warehousing, retail, window cleaning, chimney sweeping and outdoor advertising. It does not change construction or agricultural standards.

Effective Date: This final rule becomes effective on January 17, 2017. Some requirements in the final rule have compliance dates established after the effective date. This allows time for employers to implement the standard.

OSHA Fall Protection LogoSince 1970 the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been on mission to prevent workplace illness, injuries and fatalities by enforcing safety standards. OSHA exists, as a part of the federal Department of Labor, to create a better working environment for all Americans.

When you learn that falls are, historically, the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry, the reason for OSHA Fall Protection regulations becomes self-evident. But in addition to the direct effect of a hazard on a worker, the costs associated with workplace injury, including workers’ compensation payments, can be among the most devastating to an employer’s bottom line. These things come together to emphasize the need to prevent falls before they happen.

For general industry, OSHA requires fall protection beginning at a height of four feet. In construction, fall protection is required above six feet. Protection must also be provided any time an employee must work above hazardous equipment or machinery, regardless of the distance. Employers are responsible to determine the locations where fall protection is required, make sure that proper protection systems are provided, and finally to implement employee training in their use.

Compliance with OSHA Fall Protection regulations requires the right tool for the right job. Here at CAI Safety, we not only provide you with everything from off-the-shelf protection equipment to customized solutions, but we can also take care of your training and certification needs.

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.
